Black women are four to five times more likely to die during pregnancy, childbirth, and six weeks after compared to White women.
Five X More, a grassroots campaign, is conducting a national survey into Black women and birthing people’s experience of maternity care by the NHS in the UK. They will also be conducting in depth interviews where we will be collecting witness statements.
The core objective of this survey and overall project is to understand why Black women and birthing people have poorer outcomes and experiences in order to produce recommendations to make pregnancy and childbirth safer for Black women in the UK.
