The Black Maternity Experience Report Launch Event

Tuesday 24th May

The results from the Five X More nationwide survey on Black women’s maternity experiences will be officially launching on Tuesday 24th May


For many years Black women and birthing people in the UK have experienced poorer health outcomes and lower quality of care. This is particularly true within maternity. In the recent MBRRACE reports, clear racial variations in maternal deaths were observed, showing that Black women are four times as likely to die as white women during pregnancy, delivery or postpartum, yet the reasons for the differences in maternal outcomes remain unclear.

We believe a crucial step to solving this is to understand how maternity care is delivered from the perspective of women from the Black community.

Join us as we delve further into the statistics of this landmark study completed by over 1300 respondents and hear updates from our special guest keynote speakers TBA.
