Obstetric hemorrhage is a major contributor to maternal morbidity. All obstetric clinicians should be prepared to identify and appropriately respond to this potentially life-threatening complication of pregnancy. This monograph provides essential knowledge and tools needed to promote more positive outcomes and provide safer patient care. The inherent need for collaboration is reinforced and clinical case excerpts are presented to support the application of concepts to practice. Strategies and ideas for preparation through simulation are also presented.
