Postpartum hemorrhage or maternal hemorrhage refers to the excessive blood loss after the childbirth. It is treatable but needs emergency care.
Postpartum hemorrhage occurs when a pregnant women experiences excessive bleeding after the delivery of the baby. About 1 in 100 to 5 in 100 women experience postpartum hemorrhage. It is more common in the cesarean process than the natural process of giving birth. Maternal Hemorrhage often happens after the placenta is delivered. It is one of the leading cause of preventable maternal deaths worldwide.
After the delivery, the uterus usually contracts and pushes out the placenta. These contractions help put pressure on the bleeding vessels in the area where the placenta was attached at the time of birth. If the uterus does not contract strongly enough, the blood vessels bleed freely, causing postpartum haemorrhage.
Other causes may include:
It is important to replace lost blood in treating maternal haemorrhage. You may quickly be given fluids, blood, and blood products to prevent shock. Oxygen will also help in such situations. Maternal haemorrhage must be taken seriously by all pregnant women. The problem can be nipped in the bud if the cause of bleeding can be found quickly, it can be treated and you will be able to recover fully.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
