    Push for accurate reporting of maternal deaths

    April 13, 2011

    On Saturday [April 9], Birth Matters VA is putting on the sold-out Healthy Mothers, Healthy Birth Summit at the Dulles Campus of Shenandoah University. On Sunday, midwife Ina May Gaskin, author of the classic Spiritual Midwifery and the just-released Birth Matters, is taking her Safe Motherhood Quilt on a march to the Capitol. ´╗┐The goal of both events is to raise awareness about the underreporting of maternal mortality in the United States and to call for infrastructure that accurately records this problem nationwide so that it can be studied and the rate of deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth can be lowered.
