Estimating blood loss at delivery. Anecdotal evidence suggests that midwives and other health care workers underestimate the amount of blood a woman loses at delivery. This study was an attempt to ascertain whether this is true. A pilot study was conducted which used simulated blood amounts on bed linen and blue sheets. Participants were asked to ascertain the blood loss at six (6) different stations and record their responses on a survey form. Analysis of this data demonstrated that midwives were between 300 to 500 mls under the amount when the blood loss was over 700 mls.
