Abstract / Description:
CVD is the leading cause of maternal deaths in the U.S., contributing to a more than twofold increase in pregnancy-related mortality from 1987 to 2015, and better CV management in pregnant women is needed, according to a presenter.
Additionally, Black women experienced a more than threefold greater risk for pregnancy-related mortality compared with white or non-Hispanic women, Renee P.
