Risk Factors for Maternal Mortality

Risk Factors

Pregnancy-related mortality for Black women is consistently higher than for White women. Older women, particularly women aged 35 years or over, are also at increased risk for pregnancy-related deaths. Women who received no prenatal care also had a higher risk of pregnancy-related mortality compared to those who received "adequate" prenatal care.
