Postpartum Hemorrhage Hemorrhage In Mother
Dangerous!: Postpartum hemorrhage still kills women in developed countries in generally preventable complications. It means a woman loses more than a liter of blood after c-section or more than half a liter after vaginal birth.

Massive transfusion.: You were probably transfused with a lot of blood without the time to properly crossmatch it.
