This review article provides a summary for obstetric anesthetists of the 2014 Mothers and Babies—Reducing Risk through Audits and Confidential Enquiries across the UK (MBRRACE-UK) report, which includes surveillance data for the 4-year period 2009 to 2012. Maternal deaths from Ireland were included for the first time in the 2014 report, as were cases where the affected women survived life-threatening situations (near misses).
