Bulletin of the World Health Organization - Risk of Death Following Pregnancy in Rural Nepal, WHO. URL-http://apps.who.int/iris/ WHO estimates that some 515 000 women die annually from pregnancy-related causes during the period including pregnancy and the six weeks postpartum, nearly all in the developing world (1). The need for accurate measurement of the risk of such mortality has raised questions about the adequacy of the
conventional 42-day postpartum period of risk used to define maternal death (2, 3). It has been suggested that the period for calculating the risk of maternal mortality should be extended to 12 weeks. However, concern has been expressed that this would reveal only a very small percentage of deaths attributable to pregnancy and its complications (4, 5). In recent years, WHO’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) has introduced two additional definitions to accommodate measures of extended maternal risk: a late maternal death occurs more than 42 days but less than a year after the outcome of pregnancy and is attributable to direct and indirect obstetric causes; a pregnancy-
related death occurs within the conventional six-week interval but includes deaths from all causes during pregnancy and until 42 days (six weeks) postpartum (6).
