The impact of diuretics on the foetus is controversial, and thus they are not preferred during pregnancy [1]. Excessive fluid retention during late pregnancy can lead to acute pulmonary oedema (APO), which increases the foeto-maternal morbidity and mortality [2, 3]. Reported incidence is about 0.08%, which can become 1.5% in pre-eclampsia [2–4]. Although most commonly reported during late pregnancy and early puerperium, the occurrence of APO during labour is very rare [2, 3].
