Maternal Mortality (MMR) is estimated at 1600 per 100,000, placing Somali women among the most high-risk groups in the world.
2-Prolonged and obstructed labour
These are the major causes of death at childbirth. Anaemia and female genital mutilation (infibulation) have a direct impact on, and aggravate these conditions.

Poor antenatal and postnatal care, with the almost complete lack of emergency obstetric referral care for birth complications, further contribute to these high rates of mortality and disability
