Postpartum Hemorrhage

As August, Women's Health Month, comes to a close, we will bring to your attention PPH, or postpartum hemorrhage, an all too frequent and dangerous problem after the happy moment of bringing a precious child into the world.  In fact, it is the leading cause of maternal mortality.  According to, in the developing world, 14 million women experience PPH.  That equals 26 women each minute!  (To read the full article, click here.)

This article, from, explains PPH.

This is why it's so very important to give birth at a hospital, and also to have regular checkups during pregnancy as well. 

An article on the website about maternal health in Nepal written by a young Nepali mother, who is a public health researcher, is very interesting.  You can read it here.

Recently, Dr. Binod Arial, OB/GYN, gave a speech to the doctors
on the topic of postpartum hemorrhage. 

In attendance, among the doctors, were our other two OB/GYNs
Dr. Vidya Pradhananga and Dr. Lavona Pilli.

We are happy to have three obstetrician/gynecologists for you to choose from.
(You don't need to wait for a problem to come in for a consultation.
They are ready to answer any questions you may have at any time.)

Many of our doctors were able to attend the presentation.

Thank you Dr. Binod!

We also thank our dedicated OB nurses.  Here are just a few of them.
