Perinatal depression in refugee & asylum seeking women of Bradford: Maternal articulation of symptoms in contrast to clinician recognition. Developing tools/methods to enhance treatment


This is a qualitative doctoral project looking at how maternity services in England can be developed to be more effective at recognising and supporting refugee and asylum seeking women with symptoms of perinatal depression.

Interviews will take place with 14 midwives and 20 refugee and asylum seeking women across England, exploring how midwives can better recognise and support women and also the barriers/ facilitators to doing this within the current maternity system.
