It would appear that this tragic death was due to the ruptured tumor...therefore not a 'pregnancy related death'. Likewise, if the rising maternal mortality rate is linked to the higher cesarean rate, those deaths are surgically caused, not pregnancy related. They are 'maternal mortality' simple because a mother has died around the time of birth, but to then deem pregnancy and birth more dangerous, when it is actually a dangerous to have unnecessary surgery (because anything above 15% is unnecessary according to the WHO), is to cause mothers to fear pregnancy and birth instead of the real problem.
