New initiative to prevent caesarean section deaths

University of Birmingham experts are leading a new initiative to help save the lives of thousands of women giving birth by caesarean section in developing nations. Mothers in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) who give birth by Caesarean section are 100 times more likely to die than those having the procedure in high-income countries. Backed by £2.2 million of Medical Research Council (MRC) funding, the C-Safe project will target healthcare professionals, pregnant women and health systems  – initially focussing on India and Tanzania. The five-year programme aims to reduce the risk of post-natal death  for both mothers and babies as well as life-long health problems that affect women’s quality of life and ability to safely have more children.
