As obstetricians, we aim to provide care for our patients which improves outcomes for mothers, babies and the community as a whole.

Severe maternal morbidity is a much more common outcome than maternal mortality, and risk factors for severe maternal morbidity are increasing among those we see in antenatal clinics everyday.
