"Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal mortality globally. Commonly defined as a blood loss of 500 ml or more within 24 hours after birth, it affects about 5% of all women giving birth around the world. Globally, nearly one quarter of all maternal deaths are associated with PPH, and in most low-income countries it is the main cause of maternal mortality."
