Let us start with basics

What is Maternal Mortality Rate : It is the number of pregnant women who die during child birth

It depends on
Mother's Health
Availability of facilities
In ten lakh deliveries
50000 women can die
10000 women can die
600 women can die
100 women can die

If no Cesarean is done
Out of 10 lakh pregancies
50000 women die (5 percent death and 95 percent survival)
This was the situation till 1970s When Deliveries were conducted at home by skilled birth attendants

You may know stories of home Deliveries those days

In 1970s
Facilities for doing cesarean were made widely available and the number of women dying dropped drastically
