Increase in the maternal mortality rate in the US between 2000 and 2014.*

The United States is one of the only developing nations whose maternal mortality rate is increasing.**

Our Purpose

The Birth Registry aims to help decrease the high maternal mortality rate in the United States and improve maternal care more broadly by enabling healthcare providers to identify and address the variations in care that currently exist between facilities.
