What states aren’t doing to save new mothers’ lives

September 24, 2018

The second part of the series from USA TODAY examining why death rates among pregnant women and new mothers have gotten worse, making the U.S. the most dangerous place in the developed world to deliver a baby, is even more frightening than the first one. The focus of this article is on what states are doing, or more accurately are not doing, to try to stop mothers from dying.  According to the report “at least 30 states have avoided scrutinizing medical care provided to mothers who died, or they haven’t been studying deaths at all.” Instead, many blamed the mothers saying “women were smoking too much or getting too fat or on their failure to seek prenatal medical care.” Truly sad and shocking.
