Risk of Maternal Death

I know, not the sort of topic you'd expect from me, but I thought there were people reading this who might be interested.


Globally, a woman's lifetime risk of a maternal death is 1 in 74. This ranges from 1 in 2,800 for women in the developed world to 1 in 16 for women in sub-Saharan Africa. The contrast is even more stark when individual countries are compared. A woman in the UK has a lifetime risk of maternal death of 1 in 3,800 (it is 1 in 29,800 in Sweden) compared to a lifetime risk of 1 in 6 in Sierra Leone and Afghanistan.
