Abstract: Background: Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is one of the most common causes of maternal death, especially in developing country. Pregnancy and childbirth involve significant health risks, even to women with no preexisting health problem. The objective of this study was to analyze various risk factors associated with PPH. Methods: This prospective observational study was conducted in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. SSG District Hospital, Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, India. A total number of 100 cases of postpartum hemorrhage were included. Results: Most common cause of post - partum haemorrhage was the atonicity of the uterus which was seen in 80 (80%) of the total pregnant women. PIH was seen in 30 (30%) pregnant women followed by APH which was seen in 03 (03%) pregnant women. Prolonged labour was accounts for 15 (15%) cases of PPH and retained placental products accounts for 10 (10%) cases of PPH. Large baby induced PPH was seen in 03 (03%) pregnant women and genital tract injuries accounts for 05 (05%) cases of PPH. Pregnant women and multi parity accounts for 05 (05%) cases of PPH. Conclusions: We concluded from the present study that post - partum hemorrhage can be managed effectively by active management of the third stage of labour with use of uterotonics and blood transfusion. It is important to be prepared for PPH in all women giving birth, as some develop it without any known risk factors.
