Purpose of review: The landscape of post-partum hemorrhage management is rapidly changing. Modifications to definitions, bundles, and care plans occur frequently with management strategies becoming more complex. It has become apparent that the management of these patients requires a multidisciplinary approach with the involvement of obstetricians, anesthesiologists, gynecologist/oncologists, nursing, and care associates. This review article is meant to be an evidence-based review of post-partum hemorrhage with practical recommendations and a look at future directions of the management of post-partum hemorrhage from the vantage point of the obstetric anesthesiologist in an effort to enhance the collaborative treatment of this at risk population.
