The earthquake in South Asia may continue to result in casualties for months to come.
The U.N. estimates 40,000 pregnant women were among the 4 million people affected by South Asia's Oct. 8 earthquake. Health officials say the temblor may have triggered miscarriage and premature labor, and could worsen Pakistan's already dismal statistics on infant mortality.
Korejo said higher infant and maternal mortality rates could persist in the quake zone if survivors don't get adequate health care. "If they can't reach care, (mothers and babies) could easily die," she said.
Women treated at the hospital are the lucky ones. Some 800,000 people in remote areas have been virtually cut off since the quake, with no aid or medical care.
