Taking Action to Improve the Health and Wellbeing of BAME Pregnant Women

  • Did you know that black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) women are up to five times more likely to die during pregnancy and birth than white British women?
  • If you did, do you understand the reasons why?

Maternity Action and the Race Equality Foundation ran a webinar to explore why BAME women are at disproportionate risk in pregnancy and agree action to improve outcomes to ensure this group of women live healthily during pregnancy and into new motherhood.  

Contributors of the event were:

  • Maternity Action
  • Race Equality Foundation
  • Royal College of Midwives
  • Manor Gardens Welfare Trust
