Most maternal deaths occur by preventable means . This could be addressed by finding better ways to track the vitals of mothers and better ways of determining maternal mortality risk. This paper uses an association rule mining (ARM) algorithm called Apriori to generate human readable rules to better classify maternal mortality risk. The Waikato Environment for Knowledge Analysis (WEKA) was used to apply the Apriori algorithm to the data set and python was used to clean the data set. The data set that was used consisted of real maternal health vitals that were then converted into categorical data to apply the Apriori algorithm.
