About this title

Synopsis:

Seeking asylum is an emotive and highly contentious issue in today?s social and political environment. Opinion about asylum seeking is usually based upon information generalised from statistics. One of those statistics highlights that if you are Black African or an asylum seeker in the UK, you have a six times greater chance of dying from conditions related to pregnancy and childbirth than if you are White. Within this context, understanding what happens during maternity care to individuals who are newly arrived is of paramount importance. Understanding the women?s view points in this book has helped to create teaching aids that will enable a process of reflection and may help professionals to walk in the shoes of others. Seeing maternity care from the perspective of others will help to build sensitive and culturally appropriate care. Therefore, this book would be especially useful for all who are interested in the concept of asylum seeking, those who are interested in building strategies for inclusion and diversity or who teach about asylum seeking, medical or midwifery students, maternity carers and those whose professions are allied to maternity care.
