This new report from the Muslim Women Network lays out the findings of their inquiry into the maternity experiences of Muslim women in the UK, particularly from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic backgrounds, which aimed to better understand what factors were influencing the standard of maternity care they received and which may be contributing to poorer outcomes for Muslim women and their babies.

The provision of maternity services was found to be variable and inequitable, with inequalities being persistent throughout antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care. The report concludes by laying six key areas in which Muslim women were made to feel "invisible" throughout their maternity care journeys.

By Shaista Gohir OBE, for the Muslim Women Network.
