Postpartum Haemorrhage said to one of the main causes of maternal morbidity in world wide. During Vaginal delivery and C-section unexpected blood loss occurs leads to critical condition in the patient. More likely with a Caesarean birth about 1 to 5% of women have postpartum Haemorrhage. Postpartum Haemorrhage occurs most commonly after the delivery of placenta. The average amount of loss of blood after a single child birth in vaginal delivery is about 500 ml. During the C-section birth it is approximately 1000 ml. Most Postpartum occurs alter after the delivery of the baby. There are two types of PPH one is the Primary PPH which occurs in a day. Secondary PPH occurs after a day or up-to six weeks. The proposed system contains a database about the critical condition that arise during the delivery. It also contains accuracy, sensitivity and specificity comparison that occurs during the PP. Using the Feed Forward Neural Network with Particle Swarm Optimization the classification is optimized and the PPH occurrence is detected.
