maternal deaths per day

300 000 women die every year during pregnancy or within the first 6 weeks after delivery. 

Bleeding is the leading cause of death.

WHO recommends the use of external aortic compression to temporarily reduce bleeding.

Women are not dying because of untreatable diseases. They are dying because societies have yet to make the decision that their lives are worth saving
