ICD-10 is an international statistical classification used in health care and related industries.

Produced by the World Health Organization, it is used in several countries around the world. Some have gone on to develop their own national enhancements, building off the international version of the classification.

Chapter XV of ICD-10 deals with conditions occurring during pregnancy, childbirth and the puerperium (more commonly known as the postpartum period). Examples of conditions captured using codes from Chapter XV include; miscarriage, gestational diabetes, multiple gestation, and obstetric death.
