United States Maternal Mortality | OBHG

It is unacceptable that the U.S. has the highest maternal death rate among the world’s developed nations. It is equally unacceptable that there are significant disparities in outcomes based on factors such as race, ethnicity, geographic region, payer status and even care models at the facilities caring for mothers and babies.

As the pioneers of OB hospitalist medicine, OBHG has 13 years of singularly focused experience across a national network of hospital partners. We believe that OB hospitalist programs are one of the most effective ways to reduce maternal mortality rates in this country.

The infographic below provides critical facts and figures at a glance – including the most common causes of preventable maternal death, and how health systems, clinicians, advocates and agencies can work together to address the issue.
