Maternal Critical Care

Maternal critical care: identifying at-risk women and understanding the short and long term consequences of critical illness in pregnant or recently pregnant women

About 1 in 100 women experience life-threatening illness (‘critical illness’) during pregnancy or childbirth. We aim to measure the number of pregnant women who need critical care, identify those women at highest risk of needing critical care, and report the short and long-term health consequences of surviving critical care for pregnant women and their babies.
