11.33 Hemorrhage

Flooding and Hemorrhage. Placenta Praevia.

SOMETIMES during the latter months of pregnancy quite a little hemorrhage starts up from the fact that the afterbirth, which normally is attached to the side of the womb, becomes engrafted into the lower segment so as to cover the opening into the womb. This latter is often separated from its moorings and considerable hemorrhage ensues, which may vary from a small to an extremely large and fatal amount. The physician should be summoned immediately and labor induced at once, if this condition is really found to exist.

Flooding after labor is due to a relaxed womb or some open blood vessel. The womb is to be seized and squeezed together into a small mass, driving out clots; one teaspoonful of ergot in a little hot water is to be taken, and the foot of the bed elevated till the arrival of the doctor.
