Maternal health is a term used to describe the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. It is a vital component of reproductive health and includes physical, mental and social well-being. Despite the importance of maternal health, it is often overlooked and underfunded. According to the World Health Organization, every year, nearly 300, 000 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth.
