The postpartum period is a critical time to ensure women and their newborns are healthy. It is important to closely monitor a woman’s health during this recovery time – especially if she experienced complications during pregnancy or childbirth – as over half of maternal deaths occur during the first days, weeks, and months after childbirth. The most common yet preventable causes of severe maternal morbidity and maternal mortality include obstetric hemorrhage, severe hypertension, venous thromboembolism, infection and cardiac disease. During this time, mothers also are at risk for postpartum depression. Even healthy women who give birth are at risk for these complications.


AWHONN designed the Save Your Life magnet to alert women to the signs of potentially life-threatening complications that could affect them after they give birth. This magnet is 4 inches x 6 inches.   The AWHONN POST-BIRTH Warning Signs detailed on the magnet template include:


·        P= Pain in your chest

·        O =Obstructed breathing or shortness of breath

·        = Seizures

·        T = Thoughts of hurting yourself or your baby

·        B =Bleeding that is soaking through one pad/hour, or blood clots the size of an egg or bigger

·        I = Incision that is not healing

·        R = Red or swollen leg that is painful or warm to touch

·        T= Temperature of 100.4° F or higher

·        H = Headache that does not improve, even after taking medicine, or bad headache with vision changes


The magnet is not designed to act as a stand-alone product, but as a resource that can be given to mothers as part of comprehensive postpartum discharge planning and parent education. Nurses and other health professionals  who provide this education are strongly encouraged to complete  AWHONN’s Post-Birth Warning Signs online education.  AWHONN has developed this  course to help ensure that nurses who are responsible for postpartum discharge teaching and follow-up have the tools they need to  provide mothers and families this essential  information. Click here for more information about this online education program and other AWHONN Post-Birth Warning Signs professional and consumer resources.
