Abstract

The fourth report of the Confidential Enquiry into Maternal Deaths and Morbidity from the MBRRACE‐UK collaboration was published at the end of 2017 . Presenting maternal deaths in the UK as a rolling triennial average, this is the first report since the 2003–2005 triennium that has failed to show a continued decrease in total deaths. Although maternal deaths from indirect causes have continued to decline, there has been a non‐statistically significant increase in the number of deaths from direct causes. There has been an increase in the number of deaths from haemorrhage, particularly related to abnormally invasive placentation. This underlines the challenge set by the Government target to halve the number of maternal deaths in England by 2030 .The MBRRACE‐UK collaboration was commissioned in 2012 by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) to continue the Confidential Enquiry into Maternal Deaths, which for England and Wales has run continuously since 1952. Since its introduction, the Enquiry scope has been expanded over successive years to include the rest of the UK (since 1985) as well as the Republic of Ireland (since 2012). One of the changes to the Enquiry style since the involvement of MBRRACE‐UK has been the introduction of annual
