Here’s a great example of ProPublica’s reporting: Lost Mothers
This is a rough read, for sure. They’ve done surprisingly deep-dives on the circumstances of 134 (and counting) of the estimated 700 to 900 women who died in the U.S. from pregnancy-related causes.
The U.S. has the highest rate of maternal mortality in the developed world. Yet these deaths of women from causes related to pregnancy or childbirth are almost invisible. When a new or expectant mother dies, her obituary rarely mentions the circumstances. Her identity is shrouded by medical institutions, regulators and state maternal mortality review committees. Her loved ones mourn her loss in private. The lessons to be learned from her death are often lost as well.
