The U.S. Finally has better Maternal Mortality data. Black Mothers still fare the worse.
For the first time, the United States has standardized maternal mortality data from all 50 states — a first step toward identifying ways to reduce pregnancy-related deaths across the country, experts say.
Researchers found that of the 658 women who died of maternal causes in 2018, black women fared the worst, dying 2½ times more often than white women (37.1 vs 14.7 deaths per 100,000 live births), while Hispanic women had the lowest rate of maternal mortality, 11.8 deaths per 100,000 live births.
"I don't think it's as important to focus on the exact numbers. What's important is that black women have a much higher maternal mortality rate than white women." Precise data could lead to new policies that would reduce preventable deaths and eliminate the racial disparity in maternal mortality.
