  • If your waters have broken but you are not in labour after 6 hours
  • Your contractions are lasting for over 12 hours, but the baby has not come yet
  • You are bleeding heavily and the blood soaks more than 2 to 3 pads in 15 minutes
  • Your placenta has not come out, and it is 1 hour after the birth of your baby

Your baby:

  • You notice that your baby does not cry at birth, or has difficulty breathing
  • You notice that your baby cannot breastfeed
  • You notice that your baby has a fever, or feels cold
  • Your baby is very small (less than 1500 grams or born earlier than 32 weeks)
