Pregnant women in war zones

Death from violent conflict is a little acknowledged cause of maternal mortality. An estimated 140 000 women die in conflict every year and an unknown proportion of these women are pregnant at the time of death, adding to the estimated 303, 000 women already expected to die annually worldwide in pregnancy and childbirth. This study talks about how war aggravates an existing high maternal mortality rate by destroying health services and preventing access to them.
