Answer

Clinical guidelines on postpartum endometritis were released in March 2019 by the Collège National des Gynécologues et Obstétriciens Français (CNGOF) and Société de Pathologie Infectieuse de Langue Française (SPILF). [25]

Caesarean delivery is the most significant risk factor for postpartum endometritis, particularly if performed after labor has begun.
