Overview

Objective: Analysis of maternal mortality in the Slovak Republic in the years 2007–2018. Methods: The analysis of selected maternal mortality data in the years 2007–2018. Results: In the years 2007–2018, 84 women died during pregnancy or within 42 days of the end of pregnancy – maternal mortality ratio was 12.57 per 100,000 live births. Direct maternal mortality ratio in this period was 4.64 (31 maternal deaths), indirect maternal mortality 6.74 (45 maternal deaths) and direct obstetrics death ratio was 11.38 per 100,000 live births. Pregnancy-associated but unrelated maternal death ratio was 1.19 (eight maternal deaths). The Slovak Gynecological and Obstetric Society revealed a 64% underestimation of maternal mortality data in comparison with routine statistical data. Conclusion: Maternal mortality ratio in the Slovak Republic was one of the highest in the European Union and was discordant with a good level of perinatal mortality. In the Slovak Republic, it is necessary to look for ways to reduce maternal mortality and improve data collection.
