Risk rates in a normal pregnancy?

Not sure if this counts as sensitive subjects?

I am trying to find information on the rate of serious injury/mortality in otherwise normal, healthy pregnancies. All the studies I can find discuss complications or lack of prenatal care, etc. I just want to know what the risk levels are (both mom and baby) for a pregnancy with no complications and normal prenatal care. Anyone have this info?

Re: Risk rates in a normal pregnancy?

It depends on what it is really, the risk varies for everything because there are so many conditions/complications I don't think you can really put a blanket statistic on it. I just know that it is very low, if you are having a normal healthy pregnancy so far and you are healthy I wouldn't be researching unless there is something specific that you are worried you are at risk for. Things could always happen, even if the odds are in your favor so I wouldn't worry about what could happen since it seems like nothing will.

I wasn't really researching for my own pregnancy, I was more curious based on all the research on unnecessary CS (which I did have), and wanted to know whether this number is out there somewhere.

I'm not sure if this is what your looking for or not but I do know the WHO deemed c-sections necessary in 10% of deliveries.
