Childbirth and maternal mortality in Pakistan

Doctor Musarat and a staff nurse wait for blood during Nafeesa's surgery. The heavy blood loss wasn't controlable and in the end a hysterectomy was needed. With a difficult blood type and lack of donated blood the doctors have to wait to continue the surgery. Lack of resources or in this instance blood make the conditions very difficult for skilled health workers trying to provide care. Karachi, Pakistan, 2010
