Alanyi Parish,Uganda,Africa. A complicated birth. A mother gives birth to her baby son, after many hours of strenuous labour. The baby was born on the early hours of the next day, at around 1.30am. Maternal mortality is unacceptably high. W.H.O. statistics show that about 830 women die from pregnancy- or childbirth-related complications around the world every day. By the end of 2015,roughly 303,000 women died during and following pregnancy and childbirth. 99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries. Maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities. Almost all of these deaths occurred in low-resource settings, and most could have been prevented.
