    Not common at all, but certainly not unheard of. Some hospitals have better statistics than others, so look into your hospital/your practioner.

    It also depends on other things such as your genetic risk factors, your overall health, whether is a c-section or a vagina delivery, and your race. Minority women have always been more likely to have adverse outcomes. But again, death is not a common thing.

    It has happened; but, in the vast majority of cases, it doesn't.

    There is a 100% certainty that you will die sometime after childbirth.
