Facts about High Risk Pregnancy

Major reasons why around 80% of mothers die at childbirth (or maternal mortality) include:
  • Severe bleeding (mostly bleeding after childbirth)
  • Infections (usually after childbirth)
  • High blood pressure during pregnancy (pre-eclampsia and eclampsia)
  • Unsafe abortion
Women who have had given birth to more than four babies are at higher risk of dying at childbirth (maternal mortality).
It is found that the maternal mortality rate is higher in case of poor and less educated women.
The recent survey conducted by WHO reveals the shocking fact that nearly 3 million girls between the age group of 15 and 19 have an unsafe abortion every year.
Babies born to adolescent girls are at 50% higher death risk than babies of women between 20 and 29 years.
It is estimated that more than 3 million newborn babies die every year and around 2.6 million babies die in the mother’s womb.
According to WHO, an estimate of about 16 million adolescent girls (teenagers) mostly belonging to low-income and middle-income countries give birth every year. Adolescent girls are at high-risk if they get pregnant.
