Abstract: Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) (≥500mls blood loss after birth) is the leading cause of death and illness for childbearing women. Data shows that almost one in four Australian women experience a PPH and there has a trend increase, both in Australia and worldwide. Data about third stage and PPH management, system processes and staff attitudes are needed to identify gaps and opportunities to improve care. The preliminary findings of the survey and audit demonstrate that their much room for improvement in the management and prevention of postpartum haemorrhage. As such, the development of interventions to aid staff will be a priority of any future research.
