Brief Overview of State MMR or PAMR

The Maryland Maternal Mortality Review Committee first convened in 2000. The committee has approximately 20 members, meets monthly from September to June, and reviews all pregnancy-associated deaths. In 2014, Maryland had 73,588 live births and 16 pregnancy-related deaths. Our goal is to identify and review all pregnancy-associated deaths, and to develop recommendations for the prevention of future deaths.
