Foley catheter placement is one of the most common medical procedures performed for patients across all age ranges and diagnoses. We present the case of a patient who required six urinary catheters during her brief peripartum stay secondary to urethral perforation. This case illustrates how a routine and simple task performed in numerous laboring patients can result in an unexpected morbidity during the peripartum period.
