Download the CVD Toolkit

About CVD 

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of maternal mortality in California and the United States. An in-depth review of maternal deaths in California found that only a small fraction of the women who died had a known diagnosis of CVD prior to their death. Most women had complained of symptoms either during pregnancy or shortly after childbirth, yet heart disease was not diagnosed.

Overview
