A specially tailored project ‘Maternal Health Education for Migrant and Refugee Women’ (MHED) is aimed to increase awareness among migrant women on the delicate issue of stillbirth which is still a taboo in many cultures. The experts believe that the risk of stillbirth is higher for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI), South Asian and African women.
Gagan Kaur Cheema who works on this special project with Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health (MCWH) in Victoria told SBS Punjabi, “This project aims to inform women about the benefits of preventative health, early intervention and antenatal care and improve their capacity to seek services from the centre to avoid stillbirth”.
