Risk of dying

What is the risk of dying while pregnant/giving birth?


I think this one depends on where you are. Some countries have poor medical facilities and health support system so lots of women die during childbirth and while carrying. Also your physical health before getting pregnant also matters. Remember that pregnancy adds stress to the body so if you are normally sickly then the risks increase.


I agree in developed countries risk of dying from childbirth is fairly rare. However in 3rd world countries where people do not have access to decent health care, the numbers are alarming.
