The Maternal Mortality Survey was conducted to understand current insights
from maternal care providers across the U.S. The survey assessed the extent of
perceived racism on maternal and infant mortality and how organizations are
mitigating this impact. Additionally, the results of the survey helped to better
understand how COVID-19 has impacted areas of training and staff development.
Healthcare leaders can use the data highlighted in this report to inform their
organization’s learning and training programs to improve the perceived focus on
maternal and infant mortality.
