A postpartum patient is at risk of hemorrhage following delivery; often the physician will order a hemoglobin level 1-2 days after delivery to check the mother's risk status. A level of 9.9 g/dL is lower than normal for a female patient, but is not necessarily low enough to warrant a blood transfusion.
