This model was created by Dr Mel Haith-Cooper. It is published in Nurse Education Today (see articles of interest) who have given permission to use the model on our website.

The framework from the model has informed the organisation of the Maternity Stream films https://maternity.cityofsanctuary.org/films

It is helpful to think about the pregnant women in the centre of the model and factors in her environment (UK and home country) that can affect her needs whilst she is pregnant.

This model is useful for training staff who work with asylum seeking and refugee women. If you would like further information or advice about using the model please contact Mel
