PPH Scenario

You are working as a solo Paramedic on an RRV. You are called to a 29-year-old female for an imminent birth. The call is 20 minutes away, and you start responding on lights. Control updates you that a backup EA is 45 minutes away, and they are trying to get hold of a Midwife to respond, but so far, no luck.

You arrive on scene and enter the property. As you enter you hear a baby crying and see dad holding the baby with umbilical cord still attached to mum. Looking at mum, you can see a large pool of blood collecting around her. You ask how long she has been bleeding, and dad explains ever since the baby was delivered 5 minutes ago.
