This study looks at the differences in von Willebrand disease (VWD) factor levels during the postpartum period (up to six weeks after delivery) between women with and without von Willebrand disease.
We will access how quickly these levels actually drop in both groups of women and how this correlates with the actual amount of bleeding after delivery.
Participants who have von Willebrand disease must:
Participants who do not have von Willebrand disease must:
Participants in the two groups will be matched based on age (within five years) and race.
Participants may receive $300 upon satisfactory completion of study.
