Risk Factors for Maternal Mortality

Risk Factors

Depression and substance use disorders were strongly associated with maternal mortality in Utah in 2015-2016. Nationally, Black women have a 3-4 times higher rate of pregnancy-related mortality than White women. 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.
