October is Black History Month and in celebrating and remembering important people and events, the North east London Local Maternity system is launching “Celebrating Black Women’s Births”, a webinar that celebrates births in Black African & Black Caribbean communities and explores the role of the COVID-19 Vaccination in ensuring safety in pregnancy and fertility.

The discussion will focus on:

  • In celebrating Black women’s births, how can we ensure safety and wellbeing during pregnancy and fertility? What role does the COVID-19 vaccination have in ensuring safety and better outcomes?
  • Directly addressing fears and concerns that both pregnant women, partners and their loved ones and staff supporting Black women can experience when being asked questions relating to fertility, pregnancy and breastfeeding and the COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Provide expert Q&A space for staff working within maternity services and primary care or aligned health and care services
  • Combine practical advice with the current clinical expertise to give pregnant women the tools needed to address questions and discussions on this very important theme, recognising the experience of Black women in maternity services.

If you can’t make it, please email your questions or comments to elhcp.maternity@nhs.net so that they can be answered as part of the recorded webinar. This will be available to watch by Friday 5 November 2021.
