Causes of higher maternal mortality in racialised communities.

Tue, 02/09/2021 - 14:59

Issue area

In November 2018 MBRRACE-UK, a collaborative research unit based at Oxford University, published a report on the number of women who had died in childbirth in the UK and Ireland between 2014 and 2016.  One of the principal findings was that women from minoritised communities were up to five times more likely than white women to die during birth or within the first year of their baby’s life.

While exposing the disparities based on ethnic origin the report did not provide the evidence to identify the causes for why this was the case.  The two most common causes of death were thrombosis and haemorrhage while the third is suicide.  Campaigners say that it is fair to conclude from the evidence that unequal access to pre and post natal care and a lack of mental health support are key factors. 

What we're looking for

Esmee Fairbairn Foundation has convened a session with organisations working on the issue and we have identified with them some early priorities.  We would like to work with other funders and foundations interested in the issue to pool resources and insight, and ensure any work we undertake in this area is aligned to best effect.  We would hope that the work will ultimately contribute to greater awareness of and efforts to address racial disparities elsewhere in the provision of services.
