U.S Maternal Mortality Rate
Maternal death occurs when a woman dies during pregnancy or childbirth in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that in recent years, the U.S. had an average of 700 maternal deaths per year out of 3.7 million live births—a rate that exceeded almost every other developed, high-income nation.
Black Maternal Mortality Rate
According to the CDC & the Government Accountability Office, the maternal death rate for Black or African-American (not Hispanic or Latina) women was 44.0 per 100,000 live births in 2019, then increased to 55.3 in 2020, and 68.9 in 2021. Black and African-American (not Hispanic or Latina) women also experienced disparities in other adverse outcomes, including preterm birth and low birth weight.
In contrast, White (not Hispanic or Latina) women had death rates of 17.9, 19.1, and 26.1, respectively. The maternal death rate for Hispanic or Latina women was lower (12.6) compared with White (not Hispanic or Latina) women (17.9) in 2019, but increased significantly during the pandemic in 2020 (18.2) and 2021 (27.5).
