ABSTRACT

During the first 4 years of the nurse-midwifery service at the University of Miami—Jackson Memorial Medical Center, five cases of puerperal inversion of the uterus were reported. One case is presented and discussed with emphasis on nurse-midwifery management. A review of the literature revealed that, although rare, this phenomenon is more common than generally assumed and nurse-midwives should be familiar with diagnosis and management.
