Texas Has the Highest Maternal Mortality Rate in the Developed World. Why?
Michelle Zavala is one of a startlingly high number of women in Texas who have died after childbirth. The state has the highest number of pregnancy-related deaths not just in the United States — but in the entire developed world.

Texas' maternal mortality rates are 35.8 per 100,000 live births as of 2014, according to a study in Obstetrics and Gynecology. By comparison, the maternal mortality in Japan was 5 per 100,000 live births, according to UNICEF's 2015 data. In Poland, it was just 3.

Despite what appears to be an alarming crisis, lawmakers set only modest goals for the session. Most legislation focused on extending research efforts, rather than addressing what the maternal mortality task force has said is the underlying problem: lack of access to health care. Even the calls for more research languished during a legislative session in which trans people’s bathroom use was a top priority.

Is this actual citizen Texans, or does it include the illegals that typically have zero pre-natal care, no insurance, no personal physician (or care of any sort) and typically show up for the first time at an ER in labor? It could be a huge factor . . . .

Presumably all inclusive. The "access to heathcare" is of course political spin. These events are occuring in hospitals. Annother article described that california hospitals started using a cart with bleed supplies and whatever they might need if things went bad. Their rates dropped to 7 in 100,000 Not rocket science.

Other tid bits: obesity, diabetes, older mothers, and diferent races have increased risk. Texas has its fair share of all of that.

My wife is an OB-Gyn in the DFW area. A lot of the hospitals have gone to an OB-Gyn in house 24x7x365 to cover the walk in's. Not sure about rural TX, but in the cities, they get prety much everything with no wait - just on the taxpayer's tab. The issue isn't quality of care . . .

DC is leading the pack now, but Texas is not far behind. I think that this has more to do with poverty than anything else.
