We all have a part to play in building a welcoming and inclusive society.

We are a national network of refugee charities, people with lived experience of the asylum system, midwives, healthworkers, educators and researchers. Together we are working to raise awareness within maternity services of the issues facing refugee families, ensuring more people get the support they need in the journey from pregnancy to parenthood.

What are our aims?

  • To promote welcome, safety and inclusion within maternity services and support groups for pregnant women.
  • To ensure that the voices of women in the asylum system are heard and considered when discussing the development of maternity related services and support groups.
  • To help families overcome the barriers they experience when accessing maternity services.
  • To develop a supportive community for women whilst providing opportunities for sharing relevant resources and best practice.
