Make Mothers Matter was asked to contribute to the report on Migrant women’s mental health and wellbeing, initiated by the European Network of Migrant Women.
The aim of this report is to signal the profound impact that migration can have on the mental wellbeing of women and girls.
The research underlines the lack of availability and accessibility of quality women-centred and culturally appropriate support services.
Make Mothers Matter reported on the existence of barriers experienced by migrant mothers in accessing maternal health care in Europe. We highlighted issues such as high out-of-pocket payments, language barriers and the absence of clear policies and information, a fear of being deported, the distances to medical facilities, and biases among health care professionals.
We also called for raising awareness among policymakers, the general public but also among health care professionals and migrant women and other vulnerable groups of mothers. Mothers need to know their rights, and to receive the necessary information on how to access proper maternal care.
