The Y axis in the graph is labeled incorrectly. It's deaths per 100,000 births, not deaths per 100 (percent).

The y-axis was indeed labeled incorrectly, as the commenter has noted. California immediately corrected the error.

The trend of maternal mortality is alarming. Over the years, it is a stead growth and non stoppable. It seems that all the good measures that have undertaken have little impact in this regard. It is an honest effort to highlight this pertinent issue and it is hoped that government would take necessary action to improve the situation. thanks. Laguna Beach Homes

I truly appreciate this article because the message is so necessary. I was speaking to my co-worker today about this very topic. I have worked in many agencies throughout my career and the agencies that had leadership that communicated well with the staff were always the best. To go even further, the better agency's leaders were always direct and honest, they fostered an environment of thrust that spread throughout the agency. The aforementioned agency's employees were loyal, turnover was low and overall staff were optimistic. nicdur

These figures tell a very sad story of decline in the healthcare system of the state. Rather than giving all that money to the finance industry, the government could do more to upgrade facilities in hospitals and clinics countrywide.

"We haven't seen these rates of maternal death since the 70s," Christine Morton of California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative said. "You don't expect childbirth outcomes to go backward. That's concerning."
