In brief: 12.7 per 100000

The latest data i could find was from 2007 when 12.
7 maternal deaths occurred for every 100, 000 live births. That amounts to about 568 mothers that year. The lowest rate before 2007 was in 1987 when it was 6.6 deaths per 100, 000 live births. In 1950 it was 83.3 deaths per 100, 000 live births.
