“The US maternal mortality rate fell from 32.9 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in 2021 to 22.3 per 100,000 in 2022, according to the report, published Thursday by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics.

‘Comparing 2022 to 2021 data, the maternal mortality rate decreased substantially, and the decreases were seen broadly,’ said Dr. Donna Hoyert, a statistician at NCHS and author of the report.”
