BACKGROUND Only few studies have been carried out on the relationship between pregnancy and deaths from external causes. METHODS Information on deaths from external causes among women aged 15-49 years in Finland in 1987-2000 (n = 5299) was linked to three national health registers to identify pregnancy-associated deaths (n = 212). RESULTS The mortality rate for women during pregnancy and within 1 year of pregnancy termination from external causes was lower than mortality from external… 
Suicides during pregnancy and 1 year postpartum in Sweden, 1980–2007
TLDR
Suicide prevention calls for increased clinical awareness and cross-disciplinary maternal care approaches to identify and support women at risk.
Maternal suicide in Italy
TLDR
The first estimate of the maternal suicide ratio and a description of the characteristics of women who died by suicide during pregnancy or within 1 year after giving birth, induced abortion or miscarriage in Italy are provided.
Pregnancy-related deaths in four regions of Europe and the United States in 1999-2000: characterisation of unreported deaths.
TLDR
Comparing official maternal mortality statistics with those from a special study covering all pregnancy-associated deaths in two European countries and two US states in 1999-2000 to characterize pregnancy-related deaths that are not included in official statistics found 69 pregnancy- related deaths that had not been included as maternal deaths.
Homicide in Pregnant and Postpartum Women: A Review of the Literature
Access to better care and advances in obstetric medicine have led to a global reduction in maternal mortality rate. Although obstetric-related causes of death have decreased, the numbers of deaths
Homicide in pregnant and postpartum women worldwide: a review of the literature
TLDR
Pregnancy-associated homicide is an important contributor to maternal mortality, with rates comparable to suicide, and the findings reinforce the importance of screening for current and previous domestic violence.
Suicide in perinatal and non-perinatal women in contact with psychiatric services: 15 year findings from a UK national inquiry.
TLDR
In women in contact with UK psychiatric services, suicides in the perinatal period were more likely to occur in those with a depression diagnosis and no active treatment at the time of death, compared with non-perinatal women.
Decreased suicide rate after induced abortion, after the Current Care Guidelines in Finland 1987 – 2012
TLDR
The excess risk for suicide after induced abortion decreased, but the change was not statistically significant; women with a recent induced abortion still have a 2-fold suicide risk.
Factors influencing attempted and completed suicide in postnatal women: A population-based study in Taiwan
TLDR
The results suggest that people should appropriately assess potential risk factors and provide assistance for postnatal women to reduce the occurrence of suicide events.

  • 2012
TLDR
Compared to women who delivered, women who had an early or late abortion had significantly higher mortality rates within 1 through 10 years, and a lesser effect may also be present relative to miscarriage.
Medical marijuana laws and suicides by gender and age.
TLDR
The negative relationship between legalization and suicides among young men is consistent with the hypothesis that marijuana can be used to cope with stressful life events, however, this relationship may be explained by alcohol consumption.

Pregnancy-related violent deaths
TLDR
The Finnish database has now been used to study the incidence of all violent deaths up to one year after the end of pregnancy, with an increased suicide risk after induced abortion.
Methods for identifying pregnancy-associated deaths: population-based data from Finland 1987-2000.
TLDR
The effect of data linkages between national health care registers and complete death certificate data on pregnancy-associated deaths in Finland during the period 1987-2000 is examined.
Suicides after pregnancy in Finland, 1987–94: register linkage study
TLDR
The increased risk of suicide after an induced abortion indicates either common risk factors for both or harmful effects of induced abortion on mental health in women of reproductive age in general.
Hidden from view: violent deaths among pregnant women in the District of Columbia, 1988-1996.
TLDR
This study sheds new light on the identifying and reporting of maternal mortality, and specifically on homicide as a form of violence toward pregnant women, which should be of particular interest for all women's health providers and public health professionals, researchers, and advocates.
Pregnancy-associated mortality after birth, spontaneous abortion, or induced abortion in Finland, 1987-2000.
TLDR
The healthy pregnant woman effect for all pregnancies, including those not ending in births, is supported, according to a population-based, retrospective cohort study from Finland for a 14-year period from 1987 to 2000.
Cause-specific mortality during and after pregnancy and the definition of maternal death.
TLDR
Pregnant and recently pregnant women were found to be much less likely to commit suicide or to be the victims of homicide and found no empirical justification for including deaths not directly related to pregnancy in reported counts of maternal deaths for most of the causal categories the authors considered.
Motor vehicle crashes and maternal mortality in New Mexico: the significance of seat belt use.
TLDR
It is concluded that education about seat belt use during pregnancy (as well as the dangers of alcohol use and riding with intoxicated drivers while pregnant) is a promising strategy to reduce motor vehicle fatalities.
Treatment of Miscarriage: Current Practice and Rationale
TLDR
Current treatment of miscarriage in Finland is not based on controlled studies and all aspects of care, from best care provider to various interventions, urgently need further evaluation by trials.
Declining induced abortion rate in Finland: data quality of the Finnish abortion register.
TLDR
The data from the Finnish Abortion Register are a reliable source for monitoring trends in the abortion rate and its variation by subgroups, but are an unreliable source for the study of the medical aspects of induced abortion.
Data quality after restructuring a national medical registry.
TLDR
The validity of the 1991 Finnish Medical Birth Registry data was assessed, with special emphasis on the effects of changes made to the data collection form in 1990, when the results were compared to a 1987 data quality study.
