Broad ligament hematoma is an unusual complication that can occur during delivery, just after delivery or later in the puerperium. Rapid labor, cesarean section, instrumental deliveries, and trauma have been suggested as predisposing factors. A case of a broad ligament hematoma developing after normal vaginal delivery is presented. A high level of suspicion and the use of imaging modalities such as trans-vaginal ultrasound and computerized tomography confirmed the diagnosis. Conservative management was employed due to the patient's hemodynamic stability.
