Maternal mortality rates have increased in the United States. The purpose of this virtual workshop, co-sponsored by NICHD, is to develop a research agenda targeted at the clinical causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. An interdisciplinary team of experts will address the question of why women die from these conditions (e.g. postpartum hemorrhage, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, infection, etc.) and what can be done to identify patients at risk, and the interventions required to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality.
