Maternal Health

Local GP Dr Leslie Borrill chats with Dr Angie Doshani, Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology about the Saving Mothers' Lives Report and maternal health. Dr Doshani talks about a report published in 2011, ‘Saving Mother’s Lives’. It shares lessons learnt from the 261 women in the UK who died directly or indirectly due to pregnancy between 2006-2008. It is a user friendly report underpinned with clinical scenarios and highly recommended reading for GPs.
