Blood Volume of a Pregnant Woman
In a conversation with a
perinatologist recently, I found
out a couple of neat facts that
you might find interesting....
~A full-term pregnant woman has an
approximate blood volume of 10 liters.
That's five 2-liter soda bottles!
~The uterus has 1/2 liter of blood
flowing through it per minute at the
time of birth/full term.
