maternal mortality

maternal mortality

The number of women who die each year, from causes associated with pregnancy or childbirth, for every 1000 total births. Deaths during pregnancy from causes unrelated to pregnancy are excluded but causally related deaths are counted, even if they occur months or years after the pregnancy. Maternal mortality is a useful index of the standards of medical care in a community.
