MAIN CONDITION IN MOTHER

Perinatal deaths differ from general deaths because a condition may be reported in the record for the fetus/infant, the mother, or for both.

A maternal condition was reported in 934 (35.8%) of the 2,609 perinatal deaths registered in 2010, compared to 862 (32.3% ) of the 2,671 perinatal deaths registered in 2009.

In 2010, Fetus and newborn affected by maternal complications of pregnancy (P01) was the most frequently reported maternal cause, accounting for 341 or 13.1% of perinatal deaths, and comparing closely to the 339 or 12.7% in 2009.

Fetus and newborn affected by complications of placenta, cord and membranes (P02) accounted for 293 or 11.2% of perinatal deaths in 2010, compared to 269 or 10.1% in 2009.

(a) Perinatal deaths are all fetal deaths (at least 20 weeks gestation or at least 400 grams birth weight) plus all neonatal deaths (death of a live born baby within 28 days of birth). See Glossary for further information.
(b) Data cells with small values have been randomly assigned to protect the confidentiality of individuals. As a result, some totals will not equal the sum of their components. Cells with a zero value have not been affected by confidentialisation.
(c) All causes of death data from 2006 onward are subject to a revisions process - once data for a reference year are 'final', they are no longer revised. Affected data in this table are: 2006 (final) 2007 (final), 2008 (final), 2009 (revised), 2010 (preliminary). See Explanatory Notes 35-39 and Technical Notes, Causes of Death Revisions, 2006 and Causes of Death Revisions, 2008 and 2009.
(d) These data represent all perinatal deaths with a condition in the mother.
