This predelivery assessment is critical to classify women as being low, medium, or high risk for hemorrhage. Identifying mothers who are at high risk for postpartum hemorrhage can help specialists including anesthesiology, obstetric, and nursing teams closely monitor the mother’s delivery and recovery, prepare blood and medical equipment preventatively, and reduce maternal morbidity and mortality. Unfortunately, postpartum hemorrhage still occurs in women without recognized risk factors. Copyright © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
