What Is The Safe Motherhood Quilt Project? 
The Safe Motherhood Quilt Project, originated by midwife Ina May Gaskin, is a national effort developed to draw public attention to the current maternal death rates, as well as to the gross underreporting of maternal deaths in the United States. The Quilt honors American mothers who have died of pregnancy or childbirth related causes since 1982, the last year there was a reduction in maternal mortality.
The goal of The Safe Motherhood Quilt Project is to demand an equivalent system of counting, analyzing, and learning from mistakes made in maternity care system here, regardless of where babies are born or what caregiver is the birth attendant. Until we do that, doctors, midwives and nurses in the US will continue to work without a good system of feedback about what is and is not dangerous in maternity care, and preventable maternal deaths will continue to take place.
