Near-miss and migration- why and when

Previous studies have shown increased maternal and perinatal mortality among immigrant women. We aim at further explore the increased risks that women from low-income countries face during pregnancy and delivery. We have completed one study on women with severe morbidity, maternal near-miss, during delivery, showing that women from low-income countries have almost three times higher risk of maternal near-miss during delivery, than Swedish born women or women from high- or middle-income countries.
