In obstetrics, antepartum haemorrhage (APH), also prepartum hemorrhage, is genital bleeding during pregnancy from the [1] 24th week (sometimes defined as from the 20th week[1][2]) gestational age to term.

It can be associated with reduced fetal birth weight.[3]

In regard to treatment, it should be considered a medical emergency (regardless of whether there is pain) and medical attention should be sought immediately, as if it is left untreated it can lead to death of the mother and/or fetus.
