Pregnancy is a risk factor for venous thrombosis and the incidence of venous thromboembolism during normal pregnancy is 6-fold higher during pregnancy than in the general female population of child-bearing age. When blood vessel injury occurs, physiological haemostasis serves to maintain the integrity of the circulatory system however, the process can become inbalanced leading to signifnicant morbidity and mortality. During normal vaginal delivery, a significant number of women do have post partum haemorrhage (PPH) which may predispose them to having consumptive coagulopathy and death. This work is therefore aimed at assessing haemostatic changes in normal vaginal delivery which may predispose them to having consumption coagulopathy.
