Postpartum haemorrhage, or PPH, is heavy blood loss after a baby is born (more than 500 ml or 1000 ml). Every day, approximately 830 women die from complications of pregnancy and childbirth and PPH is the leading cause. The majority of these deaths are preventable.

One essential intervention to reduce this number, and the scores of women that live with short and long-term consequences as a result of PPH, is a commitment towards training and equipping healthcare professionals who serve women during delivery.
