What is Antepartum Hemorrhage?

Antepartum hemorrhage is defined as bleeding from or into the genital tract, occurring from after 24 weeks of gestation and before the onset of labor. APH occurs in 3–5% of pregnancies and it is a leading cause of perinatal and maternal mortality worldwide. Blood loss is often underestimated, so it is vital to observe for maternal shock and fetal compromise.
