Preston, Blackburn and Burnley Rising Maternal Mortality: a local study 1925 - 1935
Seminar Wednesday 6 November 2013
Livesey House, University of Central Lancashire, Preston by Claire Hadwen.
From the late 1870's, maternal mortality rates had remained on a high plateau. At the turn of the 20th century as birth rates declined and other death rates, such as infant mortality, had begun to fall maternal mortality had continued to rise. This presentation will examine the inter war period of 1925 to 1935 by means of a comparative case study.
