The Mummy & Me App

UK maternal mortality has decreased since 2010. However, there continues to be racial disparities with maternal and infant mortality. There is a four-fold difference in maternal mortality rates amongst Women from Black ethnic backgrounds remain four times more likely to die, and women from Asian ethnic backgrounds are twice as likely to die, compared to White women. Minority ethnic babies have a 48%–138% greater risk of negative birth outcomes compared with White British babies. This is a serious concern, particularly as there is evidence that the gap between ethnic groups is widening.

The Mummy & Me app aims to address racial health disparities in maternal and infant mortality. We provide a tool for mothers and their support networks, to reduce avoidable maternal and infant deaths, by preventing unnecessary delays in seeking care, reaching care, and receiving appropriate care before, after, and during pregnancy.
