The Kick Pregnancy Podcast

Mar 2, 2020

This is a tough subject. Bleeding or more specifically, a postpartum haemorrhage is a common fear women have as they get closer to the birth of their baby.

Does everyone bleed at birth? Well yes, everybody has blood loss during childbirth but normal blood loss is not what everyone is worried about. It is postpartum haemorrhage. The lights and sirens emergency. 

In this podcast we cover:

  • Why not every PPH is an emergency
  • What is considered a post partum haemorrhage. (PPH)
  • How blood loss gets measured
  • Who is at more risk of PPH
  • What causes PPH
  • What happens if you have a PPH
  • Will you have another PPH in subsequent pregnancies


Why did we start this podcast? Well we think there is a barrier for women to get EXPERT pregnancy info that is practical, relatable and easy to understand.

Dr Pat has helped 1000s of women have their babies and through this we know that this kind of information given to a woman at the right time can totally change her experience of pregnancy and birth.
