Emergency Maternal Care
Obstetric emergencies are medical conditions that put the lives of pregnant women and their unborn children in danger. During pregnancy, labor, and delivery, an obstetric emergency could occur at any time. All obstetric emergencies require medical care since the woman may require specialized treatment and a lengthy hospital stay.
The most frequent crises were antepartum haemorrhage, postpartum haemorrhage, foetal distress, severe pregnancy-induced hypertension, and prolonged or obstructed labour. 70.6 percent of maternal deaths and 86% of neonatal deaths throughout the time period were caused by obstetric crises.
