BAME women's pregnancy support group

Attend the BAME women's pregnancy support group, a space for supporting and empowering Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) women in pregnancy.

The aim of the BAME women's pregnancy support group is to provide a safe space to actively listen to women from BAME backrounds and gain feedback on their experiences with the aim of positively changing the way we provide maternity care at Newham Hospital.

Statistics show that there needs to be a change in the approach used to provide care for Black, Asian and minority ethnic women in the health care system.

Nationally, black women are five times more likely to die during pregnancy and childbirth.

More than 76% of women who book for maternity care at Newham Hospital are from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backrounds. In addition to the weekly pregnancy forum that is already in place for pregnant women to feedback on their experience of care, the BAME pregnancy support group aims to ensure that our care is tailored to their specific health needsof BAME women. 

The sessions take place between 6pm-8pm. Book in to attend one of the below sessions:

  • 8 November 2021
  • 22 November 2021
  • 6 December 2021
