Maternal Health Worldwide

These are some facts that we know of!!!

Every day, approximately 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth.

99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries.

Maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities.

Young adolescents face a higher risk of complications and death as a result of pregnancy than other women.

Skilled care before, during and after childbirth can save the lives of women and newborn babies.

 

 

I feel privileged that I can continue to educate not just only parents but also my fellow colleagues. I am now a part of educating team that allows me to teach midwives, doctors and the rest of health professionals so we can all aim to decrease these numbers.
