The California Pregnancy-Associated Mortality Review (CA-PAMR) project team conducted the largest to date, in-depth case review of deaths from suicide among pregnant women and among those who were pregnant within the prior year, between 2002 and 2012.

While rare, pregnancy-associated suicide is a tragic event that serves as a call to action for public health professionals and maternity care clinicians.
