Abstract

We present a case of extensive urine retention after vaginal delivery. Postpartum urinary retention occurs in 0.7 to 0.9% of vaginal deliveries. In the literature, mediolateral episiotomy, epidural analgesia, perineal lacerations, macrosomic birth and prolonged 2nd stage of labor are suggested as risk factors for postpartum urine retention.
