The most common direct causes of maternal injury and death are excessive blood loss, infection, high blood pressure, unsafe abortion practices, and obstructed labor, as well as indirect causes such as anemia, malaria, and heart disease.

Most maternal deaths are preventable with timely management by a skilled health professional working in a supportive environment.

As soon as you know you are pregnant, seek antenatal care at your nearest health facility.
