Acute inversion of the uterus is a rare emergency that occurs during the third stage of labor. Three cases of this complication are reported. General anesthesia, fundal pressure on a soft uterus, fundal implantation of the placenta, and adherent placenta were identified as the possible causes. Prompt recognition and replacement are essential in the management to preempt morbidities and mortality. The prevention, etiology, and management of this serious complication are discussed.
