State Maternal Mortality Review Committee Membership and Recommendations

February 18, 2021/by Taylor Platt and Eddy Fernandez

 The United States faces a growing maternal mortality crisis with a maternal death rate that is higher than other developed countries. Additionally, Black women are two- to three-times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than non-Latinx white women. To better understand the root causes of these deaths and develop recommendations to improve health outcomes, many states have formed maternal mortality review committees (MMRCs). These charts and maps report each state’s MMRC membership and recommendations when publicly available. To update information in the charts, please email Taylor Platt. For more information on state MMRCs, read the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Enhancing Reviews and Surveillance to Eliminate Maternal Mortality (ERASE MM).
