Every maternal death is an extreme form of tragic event. However, in addition to social and medical aspects of this event, maternal mortality rate and ratio are single vital statistics that shows economical status, quality of life, quality of education, and sociocultural status of a nation. To develop an infrastructure that prevents maternal deaths, in addition to necessary resources, a significant organization capacity is required. For this reason maternal mortality statistics are an interest for politics and economics. Maternal mortality rates of Turkey showed a steady decline in recent years that correlated with the development of socioeconomical status and educational status of the country. However, as a result of discordance in welfare in different regions of the country there is a great variation in maternal mortality ratios. Interestingly, being one of the economically and culturally developed cities, Konya had one of the highest maternal mortality rates in Turkey. By the way of organizing obstetric emergency management and referral, we achieved a maternal mortality rate significantly lower than majority of European and OECD countries in this region. This achievement required more actions including organization development and culture than obstetrics. In this study, we discussed the interventions and procedures with relevant literature.
