Why Are More Women Dying from Pregnancy Complications in the U.S.?

Approximately 700 women die from complications during pregnancy each year in the United States — and more than half of those deaths could have been prevented, according to a new report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Tuesday.

 

 

The report found that about one third of maternal deaths took place during pregnancy, another third occurred during or right after delivery, and the rest — about 33 percent — happened in the postpartum period, up to a year after giving birth.

 

 

These new findings shed light on the fact that maternal deaths are on the rise and there is a great need to ensure all pregnant women are getting the preventive care they deserve before, during, and after their pregnancies.
