The publication summarises the experience of the in-depth interviews conducted by BirthHouse Association among Roma women under the projects entitled “TAKE THE FIRST STEP! – Along with the women for equal access to respectful maternity care” (Norway Grants) and “Birthing Justice – Equal access to culturally appropriate, women-centered maternity care” (Open Society Foundation Budapest).
The aim of the interviews was to recognize and understand the experience and needs of the interviewed women from Roma communities regarding maternity care. In the present study we primarily investigate the interviews along the following topics: family planning, prenatal care, access to care and information, personalized care model, obstetric interventions, communication with and treatment of women, discrimination, and community-building
The publication on the experiences of Roma women in the Hungarian maternity care is now available on the Szuleteshaz website.
