Your request was forwarded to me today for response.

I have attached a redacted copy of an Alabama death certificate. This is
a representation of the information we collect for deaths. Please notice
that the standard question regarding pregnancy if the deceased is female
is on the death certificate.

I also took the liberty of attaching two publications from the National
Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) which contains some information about
maternal mortality.
