Maternal mortality continues to be a big threat, in spite of the increasing awareness. Even though several programs running worldwide by various organizations, the risk due to hemorrhage associated with pregnancy still persists. Both antepartum as well as postpartum hemorrhage equally contribute to this problem. The immediate detection of the problem by the patient and their management, right at the primary health care level and providing them the best possible treatment options are the key topics around which my talk will revolve. I will discuss in detail about the anticipated problems, their diagnosis, and prophylaxis, medical and surgical treatment modalities available to the patient including fluid management and blood transfusion and reactions in primary health care centre as well as up to the higher centres. My stress is on the fact that, looking after ├ó┬?┬?the bleeding parturient├ó┬?┬Ł during and after pregnancy, can make a difference and help control the maternal morbidity and mortality to a great extent.
