Maternal mortality is unacceptably high in India. About 800 women die from pregnancy or childbirth-related complications around the world every day.
In 2013, 289,000 women died during and following pregnancy and childbirth. Almost all of these deaths occurred in low- resource settings and most could have been prevented according to the World Health Organization (WHO), "A maternal death is defined as death of a woman while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and site of pregnancy, from any cause related to or aggravated by pregnancy or its management". Almost half a million women die every year from complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
About 99% of these women are from developing world with over 90% concentrated in Africa and Asia. The current maternal mortality ratio (MMR) in India is 212/100,000 live births.
The tragedy is that these deaths are largely preventable. The progress in maternal health has been uneven, inequitable, and unsatisfactory.
The risk of a woman dying as a result of pregnancy and childbirth during her lifetime is about 1 in 6 in Afghanistan compared with 1 in 30,000 in Northern Europe.
Most of the evidence for maternal mortality is obtained through hospital data and community based reports, which are situated mostly in urban areas, whereas most of the maternal deaths are from rural areas.
This study was done to assess maternal mortality in a tertiary medical college hospital situated in semi urban part of western Maharashtra where large numbers of patients are referred from rural parts of western Maharashtra and North Karnataka. This study was done to assess the local causes of maternal mortality.
This was a 10 year retrospective study. Epidemiological data was collected from the hospital register and maternal mortality ratio, epidemiological factors and causes affecting maternal mortality were assessed.
A total of 120 maternal deaths occurred. Most maternal deaths occurred in the age group of 20-24 years, multiparous women (56.66%), women from rural areas (69.16%), illiterate women (65%), unbooked patients (83.33%), and patients of low socioeconomic status (83.33%). Direct causes accounted for 72.5% of maternal deaths where as 27.5% of maternal deaths were due to indirect causes.
There is a wide scope for improvement as a large proportion of the observed deaths are preventable.
Maternal deaths can be prevented by improving the health care facilities in rural areas by ensuring round the clock availability of certain basic care.
most maternal deaths in rural areas are still due to eclampsia and post partum hemorrhage. Early detection of high risk pregnancies and referring them to a tertiary center at the earliest can reduce the complications of high risk pregnancies.
National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) can play a major role in reducing maternal mortality by advocating institutional deliveries and timely referral of high risk cases, it would be interesting to direct future studies in this regard.
Even today most maternal deaths are seen in patients from rural areas, unbooked, illiterate patients and patients from low socioeconomic status. Hemorrhage, Eclampsia and sepsis are the major causes of maternal deaths.
Improvement in primary health care in rural areas and proper implementation of NRHM programs and up gradation of hospitals in rural areas can definitely bring down the number of maternal deaths.
