  1. aPPH, postpartum haemorrhage; TA, tranexamic acid; T3, 2 hours after inclusion. α risk: P < 0.05 using the χ2 test or Fisher's exact test for categorical variables. Student's t-test was used in cases of normal distribution, and otherwise the Mann-Whitney U test was used for numerical variables.
