  34. Risk factors for postpartum hemorrhage include a prolonged third stage of labor, multiple delivery, episiotomy, fetal macrosomia, and history of postpartum hemorrhage. However, postpartum hemorrhage also occurs in women with no risk factors. So physicians from Bio tex clinic told me that doctors must be prepared to manage this condition at every delivery. Strategies for minimizing the effects of postpartum hemorrhage include identifying and correcting anemia before delivery. Being aware of the mother's beliefs about blood transfusions, and eliminating routine episiotomy. Reexamination of the patient's vital signs and vaginal flow before leaving the delivery area may help detect slow, steady bleeding. The best preventive strategy is active management of the third stage of labor to prevent one case of postpartum hemorrhage. Hospital guidelines encouraging this practice have resulted in significant reductions in the incidence of massive hemorrhage. Active management, which involves administering an uterotonic drug with or soon after the delivery of the anterior shoulder, controlled cord traction, and, usually, early cord clamping and cutting. Decreases the risk of postpartum hemorrhage and shortens the third stage of labor with no significant increase in the risk of retained placenta. Compared with expectant management, in which the placenta is allowed to separate spontaneously aided only by gravity or nipple stimulation. Active management decreases the incidence of postpartum hemorrhage by 68 percent.
