PREGNANCY AND CHILDBIRTH (O00-O99)

Pregnancy and childbirth (O00-O99), as an underlying cause of death, accounted for the deaths of 5 females in Australia in 2007.

Since 1998, this cause has accounted for a total of 100 registered deaths. From 1998 to 2007, Complications of labour and delivery (O60-O75) and Complications within 6 weeks of delivery (O85-O92) accounted for most deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth. Due to small numbers, it is difficult to make comparisons over time.

These deaths are spread across the childbearing age range, and cannot be attributed to any one smaller age group.
