      Born in Death by is the 23rd book in the In Death series. An accountant and her fiance are found murdered and an expectant friend of Mavis goes missing. Another amazing book with quite a lot happening leading up to Mavis giving birth to her daughter Bella/5.   For most of our history, pregnancy and childbirth were dangerous for both baby and mother. If we look at long-term trends in maternal mortality – the likelihood a woman will die from pregnancy-related causes – we see that every th to th birth led to the mother’s death.. Improvements in healthcare, nutrition, and hygiene mean maternal deaths are much rarer today.

      A death in childbirth may be mourned on Facebook or memorialized on GoFundMe, but it is rarely reported in the news. Most obituaries, Lauren's included, don't mention how a mother died. This is a good example of how English women confronted the pains and dangers of childbirth in the 17th century. In London and other cities and larger towns, about one woman died for every 40 births. And there was very little that the medical ingenuity of the day could do about that sad : Louis Schwartz.

      While there are about maternal deaths annually in the U.S., there are o instances of severe injuries to mothers around the time of childbirth, according to Author: Brenda Goodman, MA.   By comparison, the United States stands at deaths per live births. Various countries have different methods of determining the rates of death in childbirth, however, so it makes it difficult to draw easy comparisons. This is due to the number of classifications for death in childbirth, depending on the age of the child at death.
