Blood transfusion in obstetrics should be administered to save the patient's life. Severe blood loss could lead to hypovolemic shock which requires an immediate blood transfusion to prevent organ failure and death. Transfusion of blood and blood components must be approached like the use of medicines. They must be used only after weighing the benefits against the risks as well as in the right dose, right indication, and schedule. This review article deals with preparation, indications, administration of blood components, and its complications in obstetrics.
