This module will provide you with the opportunity to develop an insight into the life of a pregnant woman in the UK who is seeking asylum or is a refugee.

The chapters will take you on a journey to learn about why she may have fled her home country, the experiences she brings with her, what it is like to seek asylum in the UK and then how, as a midwife, you can help meet her holistic needs to ensure a healthy mother and baby.
