The Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee (PMMRC) is an independent committee that reviews the deaths of babies and mothers in New Zealand. The PMMRC’s role can, at times, include reviewing events when the mother and/or baby was very unwell as a result of the pregnancy (severe morbidity).

Te mahi tahi puta noa i te pūnaha kia kore rawa ai e mate, e whara ngā māmā me ā rātau pēpi, whānau hoki mai i ngā mate, wharanga rānei ka taea te ārai.


Working together across the system towards zero preventable deaths or harm for all mothers and babies, families and whānau.
