Maternal death, also know as Maternal Mortality, is the death of a woman while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and the site of the pregnancy, from any cause related to or aggravated by the pregnancy or its management, but not from accidental or incidental causes.
That is the standard definition that continues to defy all concerted effort aimed at its eradication.
This story is a typical scenario, a real life one for that matter, of how many women lose their lives following neglect, ignorance, poverty… Enjoy!!!
The major causes of maternal death are preventable; no woman should be made to go through harrowing experiences, or even death from preventable causes.
