Abstract

We report the first maternal death of a 29-year woman of Pakistani origin at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital (BHH), UK on the 8 April 2020. She had a body mass index (BMI) of 35, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) on metformin and insulin, renal tubular acidosis, asthma and vitamin D deficiency. In her first pregnancy, she had a stillborn baby. At her first antenatal (booking) visit, her glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) was 9.7%. She also had a high albumin creatinine ratio but with normal kidney function.
