I need good solid links with information about the infant mortality rate worldwide and the maternal mortality rate world wide. I have a few women refusing to believe the mortality rates are lower in countries that use midwifery care in low risk situations and ob's in high risk.

Thanks in advance!

Check out henci Goer's book "Obstetric Myths versus research realities". I believe it cites references.
also, maybe the world health organization, or ACNM's website: birth.org

That's all I can think of for now. You may need to email an org to help you, like Midwifery or maybe Suzanne Arm's organization Birthingthefuture.com/org- not sure which.
