The goal of our initiative is to create up a safe space for midwives and student midwives to examine systemic racism and explore any conscious or unconscious bias that can impact on our practice. Through the facilitation of workshops structured around restorative circles, we will encourage midwives to take a reflective approach to their own beliefs and any potential conscious or unconscious bias that may affect their practice and the pregnant people in their care.

The topic of race is an uncomfortable subject for many, and whilst we want to challenge midwives to examine their own personal bias, this requires open and honest conversations, that must be nurtured in a supportive manner.

By opening the conversation amongst midwives and raising awareness of the issues that women from black and multi ethnic communities face, we can together improve maternity care.
