  1. Postpartum haemorrhage in Zimbabwe : a risk factor analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives To identify risk factors associated with postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) in order to improve the effectiveness of antenatal screening.

    Design A population-based case control study

    Setting Harare, Zimbabwe.

    Subjects Two groups of women, one group consisting of those with postpartum haemorrhage after a normal vaginal delivery and the other of women with normal unassisted vaginal delivery without PPH.

    Method Data abstracted from the medical records; relative risks were estimated by multivariate logistic regression.

    Results Low parity, advanced maternal age, and antenatal hospitalisation were among the strongest risk factors, with more modest associations for history of poor maternal or perinatal outcomes and borderline anaemia at the time of booking.
