Measures of maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity have risen in the United States, sparking national interest .

Measures of maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity have risen in the United States, sparking national interest regarding hospitals' ability to provide maternal risk-appropriate care. We examined the extent to which hospitals could be classified by increasingly sophisticated maternal levels of care. Background In Nigeria, maternal mortality ratio has slightly gone up to 560 death/100,000 livebirth as compared to 2008 which was 545 death/100,000 livebirth (World Bank,2013). There are several factors responsible for maternal mortality but one fundamental cause is maternal non-patronage of quality care within the walls of a formal hospital setting.

I would recommend that 'Death in Childbirth' be required reading by medical students, doctors interested in obstetrics, and by ministers of health.

book by Irvine Loudon. This is the first international study of maternal care and maternal mortality.

To say that Irvine Loudon's Death in childbirth is a hard read might seem both offensive and paradoxical. Yet there is neither insult nor paradox: Loudon's new book is another masterpiece, written in his customary enviably crystal-clear.

Irvine Loudon (1 August 1924 – 7 January 2015) was a British doctor and a medical historian on childbirth fever and maternal mortality. His published writings included studies of the history of medicine, with a special interest in the history of general practice and maternal death in childbirth. His oil paintings, drawings and etchings were shown at several galleries: Bankside Gallery London, UK and Dolphin Gallery, Wantage, UK, Branson Art Gallery, Rosedale, Lake Balsam, Ontario, Canada.

THE CAUSES OF MATERNAL MORTALITY ; PART III: MATERNAL CARE AND MATERNAL MORTALITY IN VARIOUS COUNTRIES show more. This is a wholly satisfying book, judicious, comprehensive and passionate. This book should be required reading for all medical students. Isis Louden's focus is much wider than materanl mortality: he uses mortality as a lens through which to explore the history of childbirth.

KEYWORDS: Maternal Mortality Ratio, Causes, Trends, MDG 5, South West Region. JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vo. N. 3, September 17, 2014. ABSTRACT: Introduction: According to WHO, globally an estimated 585,000 women die each year from complications of pregnancy and childbirth. The data were analyzed with SPSS 10 and EPI .

This is the first international study of maternal care and maternal mortality. Over the last two hundred years different countries developed quite different systems of maternal care. Death in Childbirth is a meticulously researched analysis, firmly grounded in the available statistics, of the evolution of those systems between 1800 and 1950 in Britain, the USA, Australia and New Zealand, and continental Europe. Loudon examines the effectiveness of various forms of maternal care by means of the measurement of maternal mortality-- the number of women who died as a result of childbirth. His detailed study answers a number of important questions: What was the relative risk of a home or hospital delivery, or a delivery by a midwife as opposed to a doctor? What was the safest country in which to have a baby, and what were the factors which accounted for enormous international differences? Why, against all expectations, did maternal mortality fail to decline significantly until the late 1930s? It is an invaluable contribution to medical and social history.
