By Sarah Chitongo on 24 July 2020

This qualitative study explores midwives’ experiences of caring for high risk Black Asian Minority Ethnic Groups in order to identify how improvements can be made to the care and outcomes of this group. The study was also undertaken against the backdrop of research findings suggesting that Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) women had significantly higher maternal and perinatal mortality rates for minority ethnic (55 per cent higher combined) compared to their white British counterparts (9.8 percent) MBRRACE-UK (Mothers and Babies: Reducing Risk through Audits and Confidential Enquiries across the UK 2018).
