High-Risk Low-Resource Maternal Care

  • Breakout Session
  • Main Building ATCR 206

Surviving motherhood is a genuine concern. Maternal and newborn deaths are the 6th and 7th leading causes of life years lost in the world’s poorest nations. Sepsis, post-partum hemorrhage (PPH), eclampsia-preeclampsia, and failure to progress are the leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. Major interventions are to reduce family size and to provide quality obstetric care at delivery, including care for PPH and basic newborn resuscitation.
