Conclusion: The prevalence of APH in our setting is high.The major causes were abruptio placenta and placenta previa.Prevention, early detection, and prompt management cannot be overemphasized to significantly reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with this condition.
and the known association of APH with cerebral palsy can be explained by preterm delivery.
A retrospective observational study from Australia found that women with unexplained APH are at greater risk of preterm delivery, and their babies are more likely to develop hyperbilirubinemia.

Antepartum hemorrhage: A retrospective analysis from a northern nigerian teaching hospital.APH is defined as bleeding from the genital tract from the time of viability of pregnancy (from 28 weeks of gestation and beyond in this study) for extrauterine survival to the delivery of the baby.The names and hospital numbers were carefully cross-checked to ensure there was no repetition.Permission was obtained from the Institution's Ethics and Research Committee prior to the commencement of the study.A list of all patients that had APH from January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2013, was compiled from labor ward and obstetrics theater records, and the case notes were then retrieved from the Medical Records Department of the hospital.Your access to the NCBI website at gov has been temporarily blocked due to a possible misuse/abuse situation involving your site.This is not an indication of a security issue such as a virus or attack.Patients whose folders could not be traced were excluded from the study.The total number of deliveries during the study period was also obtained from the statistics unit of the Records Department.The major fetal complication was intrauterine fetal death, and the major maternal complications were postpartum hemorrhage and anemia with consequent high blood transfusion rate.Early detection, provision of antenatal care, and emergency obstetric care services can reduce the negative effects of APH.
