MATERNAL MORTALITY Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) Refers to the number of women who die as a result of complications of pregnancy or childbearing in a given year per 100,000 live births in that year. Maternal Mortality Rate Maternal Mortality Rate is defined as the number of maternal deaths to women in the ages 15-49 per lakh of women in that age group. Life time Risk Life time risk is defined as the probability that, one women of reproductive age (15- 49) will die due to child birth or puerperium assuming that chance of death is uniformly distributed across the entire reproductive span. 4
