Maternal mortality is defined as the death occurring in women, while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy irrespective of the duration and site of the pregnancy, from any cause related to or aggravated by the pregnancy, its management but not from accident or incidentally . It is currently at 342/100,000. Maternal mortality is a very devastating event as the dream of every pregnant woman is to see her child talk less of losing her own life. This is relatively better compared to ten years ago when the rate was at 680/100,000 deaths . Maternal mortality can be caused by postpartum hemorrhage, uterine rupture, disseminated intravascular coagulation, antepartum hemorrhage, septic abortion, Malaria, HIV/AIDS, anemia .
