Better care for mothers

In France, postpartum hemorrhage remains the leading cause of maternal mortality, unlike in other high-income countries. Marie-Pierre Bonnet has described the epidemiological feature of postpartum hemorrhage and the components of anesthesia and critical care management in order to better understand this phenomenon specific to France. Her research could contribute to defining health-care policies in maternity hospitals, perinatal networks and at a national level as well as be extended to other cases of severe maternal morbidity.
