A research or scholarly article discussing maternal mortality trends in the United States. This article is a little old for this topic, but does demonstrate that increases in maternal mortality in the United States has been a trend at least since 2000. As a researcher, scholarly articles will provide an expert perspective and an expert's original research on a question, but you want to be careful not to overgeneralize from any one source.
News articles on your topic might help you learn what is going on NOW on your issue. For example, this article discusses a 2019 law related to maternal mortality (you might want to find a newer article if you're using news). News articles can also be a great way to learn vocabulary for search terms.
