PPH is the leading cause of death & 
complications in Labor & Delivery

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is preventable, but can kill a woman in hours if it goes undetected and/or untreated. In the US, PPH accounts for 11% of US maternal deaths and occurs in 5% of all births. For every woman who dies, fifty experience morbidities like an unplanned hysterectomy, acute kidney injury (AKI), blood transfusions and PTSD.

Low Risk ≠ No Risk

Maternal mortality and health inequity are growing in the US

Black mothers die at 3.5 times the rate of white mothers; Native American/Alaskan Indian at 2.5 times. Hispanic maternal mortality rates have grown at +24% over the past two years. If the care team is not vigilant in detecting and treating a hemorrhage, valuable time is lost.

Improving risk prediction is crucial

Better risk assessment for PPH would not only save lives and avoid complications, but would eliminate a source of racial inequity in obstetrics care.
