Life after Postpartum Hemorrhage - Providing women with anticipatory guidance following a Postpartum Hemorrhage (PPH) is an essential part of discharge preparation. This tool, developed in partnership with PPH survivors, provides women and their families with information about what to expect - and what to symptoms to be aware of - when they go home. The form includes a place for women to indicate which topics they would like more information about and addresses issues related to physical recovery, emotional recovery, and when to seek care. Consider using this tool to supplement existing discharge education information or as a part of the postpartum visit.
