Bleeding during labor and childbirth: What to know

Bleeding (bleeding) that occurs during labor can be a serious threat to m maternity health and life, and will require immediate medical attention. Bleeding can be divided into three times: before labor, during labor and after birth.

1. Causes of bleeding during labor and childbirth

  • Due to low clinging vegetables(forward vegetables):Normally vegetables cling to the body and bottom of the uterus, but there are also cases of vegetables clinging low to the lower part of the uterus, sometimes covering the whole uterus (called forward vegetables), causing batch bleeding in the last months of pregnancy, until labor, the sub-uterus segment stretches (due to the contraction of the uterus pushing the pregnancy downwards) causing the clinging vegetable to slip and peel off, causing severe bleeding, the maternity dies quickly.
  • Due to the uterus: Usually after birth, the muscles of the uterus contract, squeezing the blood vessels located in the muscles, which have a he stop-bleeding effect, called the phenomenon of "biological hem stopping". Uterine phlegm is caused by excessive stretching of the uterus during pregnancy or during labor, symptoms of uterine sputum include: bleeding immediately after the window is the most common symptom, the uterus is enlarged, soft, shrinkage is poor or non-elastic, there is no safe mass, which can lead to stunting if not handled in time.

Uterine phlegm usually occurs in the following cases:

  • Labor is too long (more than 12 hours for the baby, or more than 16 hours for the child).
  • The uterus is excessively dilated due to twin pregnancies, tripled births, multiple amniotic fluid, too large pregnancies.
  • The uterus is pasty due to repeated calving.
  • Abnormalities caused by peeling, notebooks:
    • Omissions, membrane omissions: Bleeding usually appears after the window, the uterus may shrink poorly, the blood is leaking, the amount of blood coming out may be less or less, the blood is bright red and the blood clots. It is possible to detect each other early by examining each other and each other. If detected late, not in time, a lot of blood loss shows signs of stunting.
    • Non-peeling: Each other does not peel off within 30 minutes of pregnancy or take active phase 3 treatments of fruitless labor. Each other clings tightly and does not bleed. After the pregnancy, after 30 minutes of pregnancy, each other does not peel off completely, bleeding more or less depending on the area of each other peeling wide or narrow. Each set of fully comcomb teeth: rarely, without bleeding.
  • Genital injuries: lacerations to the vagina, vagina, peri layer, cervical, rupture of the uterus, genital hematoma
    • Rupture of the uterus ruptures the blood vessels in the rupture that causes bleeding out of the abdomen or into the abdomen. This is one of the dangerous obstetric accidents, if not detected in time can quickly lead to the death of the mother. Common in difficult procedure cases such as forcep when the throne is still high, internal rotation of the pregnancy, or in women with old surgical scars.
    • Cervical tearing,vaginal tearing, pussy: At birth, the contraction of the uterus pushes the pregnancy down, which causes the cervical opening, the vagina, the pussy and the muscles in the vaginal area also dilate so that the pregnancy can pass. If the labor time is too fast, the maternity pushes strongly, too early when the cervical has not fully opened or the vaginal muscles, the has not dilated enough, will cause tearing of these parts. Torn lesions can be shallow, deep, causing blood to bleed more or less and last for hours, if not detected, the maternity will die.
  • Blood clot disorders: May be a first-line due to blood diseases but is usually a problem due to a lot of bleeding, fibrosis loss (pervasive in-management blood clots). Pervasive intravascular co clotting can be combined with severe pre-production, intra-uterus death, hidden detached babies, amniotic infections or amniotic embolism. All these pathological conditions can lead to fibrosis consumption.

2. How to recognize abnormal bleeding maternity?

Before labor, if there is bleeding, the maternity can detect itself and go to the hospital for examination, but at birth or after birth due to maternity fatigue, falling asleep (post-calving bio-sleep), so it is impossible to detect itself, so the maternity needs to be monitored very carefully by the medical team during the period from 3 to 3 to 3. 6 hours after birth to detect and handle in time.
