A new report says that the “worst” complications and deaths associated with childbirth in India are due to complications related to childbirth, such as bleeding, infection and infection in the womb.
According to the report, India has one of the highest rates of deaths related to vaginal childbirth, with one out of four newborns experiencing complications from childbirth, according to the U.N. Population Fund.
The report, released Wednesday, said more than 80,000 women die annually from complications related the birth of a baby, which are estimated to be the most common cause of death in India.
More than half of these deaths are due, the report said, to infection, hemorrhage, dehydration and sepsis, and the report added that more than half the women who died were under 35 years old.
More women die of complications related pregnancy complications than other causes of death, the UN. report said.
In addition to India, the other countries with the highest number of complications associated with vaginal childbirth include China, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Vietnam.
The U.S. has the highest incidence of complications in India, with 17,700 deaths and 3,800 deaths associated, the United Nations report said.
“The number of women who die in India from vaginal birth complications is significantly higher than in any other country, including the United States,” said Dr. Dharun R. Sundaram, the lead author of the report and an expert on childbirth at the Umeå University Hospital.
“These are the very women who are at risk of dying, so the most important thing is to help these women to recover.”
In India, nearly 2.5 million women were born to women who were either single or divorced, and nearly one in five of these women had no health insurance.
The birth of India’s first child in 2015 was the first in the country.
India’s government launched a campaign called “Gone with the Wind,” which focused on reducing the number of deaths associated not only with childbirth, but also with other conditions, such a lack of antenatal care, poor nutrition and poor hygiene, according a news release from the government.
