ARC Case Café (13 July 2022 7.30-8.30pm) FREE
Ensuring equity through antenatal screening and diagnosis.
At this month’s café we will be discussing equity. The recent FiveX report into the maternity care experience of black women was sobering reading. Too many women reported poor care and not feeling listened to. We will talk about what needs to happen to ensure that each and every expectant parent receives individualised and empathetic care through antenatal screening and its consequences. And we will discuss how we can all effect change.
