2. Causes of Sheehan's Syndrome During Childbirth

Excessive blood loss and resulting Sheehan's syndrome is rare in nations with quality prenatal and delivery facilities. It is much more common in developing nations and can occur if a mother loses a lot of blood during delivery and is not near a hospital for immediate treatment. While some signs and symptoms of Sheehan's syndrome take months or even years to appear, others, such as the inability to breastfeed, show up right away. In fact, this is one of the main indications of Sheehan's syndrome.
