Abstract: The use of oxytocics immediately after the delivery of the baby is one of the most important intervention, to prevent postpartum blood loss, as uterine atony is the most important and common cause of postpartum haemorrhage. This study aims to evaluate whether intra-umbilical oxytocin in the AMTSL can reduce the duration and amount of bleeding as compared to intravenous methergine. The mean estimated blood loss in women treated with intraumbilical oxytocin was 213.50 whereas in intravenous methergine was 215ml; P<.001). Mean duration of third stage of labor was 3.32±1.50min in oxytocin whereas 3.36±1.41min in methergine group; P<.001). We concluded that the method of intra-umbilical injection of oxytocin immediately after the delivery of the baby, significantly reduced the duration of the third stage of labour and the amount of blood loss in the third stage of labour is comparable to the intravenous methergin.
