Hi guys! When a pregnant woman is hospitalized and about to give birth to a baby, there are several potential dangers to the woman. Is the sentence below used correctly in this situation?

"When it comes to giving birth to a baby, the door of giving birth and the door of being dead of a mother are rather close to each other."

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

I don't think the metaphor of the door is very effective in this context.

"During childbirth, the line between successfully giving birth and dying is a narrow one."

It is not necessary to specify the mother with this formulation, because it is obvious that that is who is implied.
