It was great to join almost a hundred Black mothers, policymakers and healthcare professionals for the launch of a short film from The Motherhood Group and Impact Urban Health about the continued health inequalities facing Black mothers. This week is Black Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week. Black mothers are three times likelier to experience postnatal depression yet far less likely to get support – another statistic that highlights the necessity to turn awareness into action. With growing awareness around these issues, we need the Government to set some clear and measurable targets to address them.
