Pregnancy Health Week & 30,000 Deaths; Pakistan Wake Up

It is alarming to read that an estimated 30,000 women die each year due to pregnancy related causes. It is estimated that about 500 maternal deaths occur per 100,000 live births each year in Pakistan.

Healthy Maternity Week is being celebrated all across the globe, to celebrate and increase awareness related to healthy pregnancy, “Pregnant women with their bellies painted take part in an event to celebrate "Healthy Maternity Week".

I hope Pakistani health authorities to wake and save 30,000 annual women deaths, they are also human and need due attention.
