You need to carry out a study on “Maternal mortality in the United States”. To help you think about what you need to write, please answer the following questions:
- What are the causes of maternal mortality/deaths in the United States?
- Are maternal deaths decreasing over time?/Is maternal mortality decreasing over time? Why or why not?
- What has been done to prevent maternal mortality/deaths in the United States?
- Have these efforts been effective? Why or why not?
Once you have completed your research, you will have to write a short paper response. Your paper should be 800-1000 words in length and be written in narrative form. Please address the questions asked above (but don’t just turn in a bulleted form of the answers to your questions, you are writing a paper!). Additionally, be sure to use any critical terms covered in your assigned readings and this week’s lecture.
For full credit you must incorporate at least two sources such as a reading, a video or a lecture from class (or relevant sources from outside of class). The two sources must be correctly cited (APA or MLA) in the body of your paper.
Here is a great website that can help you with formatting your works cited and correctly citing sources: The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) at https://owl.english.purdue.edu.
