New CDC Report Shockingly Reveals More Than 700 Pregnancy-Related Deaths Each Year and Most Are Preventable

The CDC has issued a new report finding that 700 women die annually in the United States from complications of pregnancy. The report also found that 60% of these deaths are preventable.

This means that 420 women are dying every year from preventable pregnancy-related complications.

The study showed that the old triad of hypertension (high blood pressure), infection, and bleeding are the most common cause of deaths immediately after delivery and that bleeding remains a major cause of death during delivery.

Women should not needlessly die during childbirth in U.S. hospitals.

We have represented the children of several women who have died from improperly treated hypertensive-diseases of pregnancy, bleeding, and infections.
