A 20 year experience of the Tulane Obstetric Service is reviewed, expressing the maternal mortality rate and presenting the causes of maternal death. Some indirect causes are becoming more important in mortality studies especially sickle cell disease, which is now causing more deaths than some of the more classic entities. Improved family planning, prenatal care, patient cooperation, as well as adequate facilities and an experienced dedicated staff are all necessary to maintain a continued reduction in maternal deaths
