Excerpt
Pregnancy is a normal, healthy state which most women aspire to at some point in their lives. Yet this normal, life-affirming process carries with it serious risks of death and disability. The statement that worldwide, over half a million young women die every year as a result of complications arising from pregnancy and childbirth has been repeated so often that it no longer shocks. Yet most of these deaths could be avoided if preventive measures were taken and adequate care available. For every woman who dies, many more suffer from serious conditions that can affect them for the rest of their lives.
