Improving maternal healthcare for vulnerable women

Women Political Leaders Global Forum has published an assessment on improving maternal healthcare for vulnerable women in the EU. Their recommendations are:

  1. Design and implement mandatory training of health professionals in delivering culturally-sensitive care.
  2. Design and implement a basic maternal healthcare benefits package for vulnerable pregnant women that covers 1) Information/ advice on family planning, 2) Access to contraception and 3) Antenatal, delivery, neonatal and postnatal care.
  3. Ensure and make clear that using maternal healthcare services does not pose the threat of having to leave the country due to one’s immigration status.
  4. Develop specific indicators to measure maternal health and pregnancy outcomes for vulnerable pregnant women.
