Risk Of Bleeding During Childbirth In Pregnant Women With Hepatitis B?
Good morning..I want to ask if it is true that pregnant women who are positive for hepatitis B will experience bleeding during childbirth..Then is it true that the delivery must be in the hospital or not at the midwife’s place. Thank you.
Hello Sister Kurnia,
Pregnant women who have positive HBsAg are generally not a risk factor for bleeding after pregnancy. A mother with positive HBsAg means that the mother has hepatitis B virus infection and is at risk of transmitting hepatitis to the baby, the baby can suffer from hepatitis or inflammation of the liver as marked by jaundice as a child or as an adult, if after birth the baby is not given an injection to provide immunity to the hepatitis virus. B stands for Hbig or Hepatitis B Immunoglobulin. Hbig can be obtained at the hospital. Consult the mother's condition to the obstetrician.
During childbirth, of course, there will be bleeding, and the puerperium. However, heavy bleeding after giving birth, such as up to 3-5 times full of blood changing pads in a day can indicate a serious situation, the cause of heavy bleeding after childbirth such as weak uterine contractions, placenta or tissue left in the uterus, to severe and unresolved birth canal tears. This should immediately receive treatment at the hospital by an obstetrician. Treatment can be given fluid therapy to blood transfusions, and the act of cleaning the placenta and its tissues or drugs that stimulate uterine contractions.
