Postpartum haemorrhaging is defined as blood loss of over 500 mL in a vaginal delivery and over 1000 mL in a Caesarean delivery. It is further classified as primary and secondary postpartum haemorrhaging depending on whether the blood loss occurs within 24 hours of delivery or after. It is the leading cause of maternal mortality in developing countries.
