Join the movement to end maternal health inequalities in Lothian! 

Launching in November 2023, ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’ is a community initiative brought to you by KWISA and NHS Lothian Maternity Voices Partnerships.

Birth and pregnancy are safe in Scotland. Yet the statistics show that women of African heritage continue to endure more negative outcomes and experiences for themselves and their babies during and after pregnancy and birth.

We want to change this, and we need your help.
