Credé method

1. Expulsion of the placenta by downward pressure on the uterus through the abdominal wall with the thumb on the posterior surface of the fundus uteri and the flat of the hand on the anterior surface, with the pressure being applied in the direction of the birth canal. This may cause inversion of the uterus if done improperly.
2. For treatment of the eyes of the newborn, the use of 1% silver nitrate solution instilled into the eyes immediately after birth for the prevention of ophthalmia neonatorum (gonorrheal ophthalmia).
3. For emptying a flaccid bladder, application of pressure over the symphysis pubis for periodic expulsion of urine. This technique is sometimes used therapeutically to initiate voiding in bladder retention in those with paralysis following spinal cord injury (neurogenic bladder).
