This study compared injury deaths between postpartum women and other women aged 15 to 44.

For females aged 15 to 19, the homicide rate was 2.6 times higher (95% CI=1.17,5.95) for postpartum females than for other females.
The motor-vehicle fatality rate was lower for postpartum females than for nonpregnant, non-postpartum females (risk ratio=0.30.
