EDUCATION AND PRACTICE RESOURCES ADDRESS THE LEADING CAUSES OF MATERNAL MORTALITY

 

According to the CDC “Report from Nine Maternal Mortality Review Committees,” approximately 700 women across the United States (U.S.) die each year as a result of pregnancy or pregnancy-related complications. Non-Hispanic black women experience maternal deaths at a rate three to four times that of non-Hispanic white women, a racial disparity that is mirrored across many maternal and infant outcomes.

 

Overall, there were seven leading underlying causes of pregnancy-related death, accounting for 72.1% of all pregnancy-related deaths: Cardiovascular and Coronary Conditions, Cardiomyopathy, Embolism, Hemorrhage, Infection, Mental Health Conditions, and Preeclampsia and Eclampsia.

 

AWHONN’s education and practice resources related to the seven  leading underlying causes of maternal mortality causes, as described in the CDC report, are listed below.
