Maria Caulfield – 2022 Comments on the Maternity Disparities Taskforce

The comments made by Maria Caulfield, the Minister for Women’s Health, on 18 May 2022.

We must do everything we can to empower women with the information and services they need to ensure a healthy pregnancy for mum and baby, no matter their background or where they live.

The latest Maternity Disparities Taskforce meeting brought together experts from across the NHS, health charities to share ideas and experiences on how we can ensure women from ethnic minorities and the most deprived areas receive the support they need.

By listening to women’s experiences we can better understand the issues they face and how to improve care, and I look forward to making progress in this area.
