Volunteers team up to investigate deaths of moms in Alabama

To combat pregnancy-related deaths, a coalition of "doctors, nurses, public health leaders and others" have created a Maternal Mortality Review Committee to act as a statewide task force and investigate the reasoning behind such deaths. This type of committee has proven to work in other states, including in California where the review committee was able to identify hemorrhage and pregnancy-induced high blood pressure as two leading causes of maternal mortality.
