Nearly half of all countries in the US do not have a single obstetrician providing maternity care.

The U.S. has the highest maternal death rate among the world’s developed nations, a rate that has continued to rise while remaining stable or falling in other developed countries.

Improving Maternal Mortality Curriculum

To improve maternal mortality, we developed a FREE innovative curriculum* using an interactive learning module to teach graduate MCH, nursing students, and community health workers critical thinking, communication, and cultural competency skills, improving health literacy practices to increase women’s understanding of abnormal postpartum systems that require emergency medical attention and their ability to seek adequate care.
