Tumble DC 25

Marginally better than silence

293 notes

Women in the United States are more likely to die during or shortly after childbirth than women in nearly all countries in Europe and many in Asia and the Middle East, according to the United Nations.


While maternal mortality declined in most countries over the past 20 years, it has not just increased, but nearly doubled, in the United States.


Experts blame the high death rate partly on the heavy reliance the United States places on technological intervention, particularly when it results, as it so often does, in surgical delivery via cesarean section.
