Post-Birth Warning Signs Education Program

Over half of maternal deaths occur within the first year after childbirth.  Common causes of maternal mortality are:

  • Cardiovascular and coronary conditions
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Venous Thromboembolism
  • Obstetric Hemorrhage
  • Infection
  • Mental Health Conditions such as Postpartum Depression
  • Pre-eclampsia and Eclampsia

All women who give birth are at risk of experiencing these life-threatening conditions.

 

To reduce maternal mortality and morbidity, AWHONN has developed the POST-BIRTH Warning Signs Education Program to help nurses and clinicians implement this life-saving program at their facility.

The POST-BIRTH Warning Signs Education Program consists of multiple components:
