Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Although the international healthcare community considers the ideal rate of caesarean delivery (CD) to be between 10% and 15%, the world health organization has confirmed that higher rates are no longer associated with reduced mortality. CD rates continue to rise globally, reaching 21% of all childbirths currently and projected to reach 29% by 2030. Postpartum hemorrhage is the main cause of maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide. The mean blood loss during CD is double the amount that occurs during vaginal delivery. Many advances that aim to reduce both intraoperative and postoperative blood loss during CD have been studied, including various medical and surgical interventions. The aim of this special issue is to highlight recent research aimed at reducing maternal bleeding related to CD.
