INVISIBLE - Maternity Experiences of Muslim Women (SUMMARY REPORT)
At its inaugural event the APPG on Muslim Women announced that it would conduct an inquiry into the maternity experiences of Muslim women. The research was conducted in 2021 by the Secretariat, Muslim Women's Network UK (MWNUK) and the report is being launched at the House of Commons on the 13th July 2022. Over 1000 women completed a survey, 37 women took part in interviews and one focus group was held.
There are two reports, which can be downloaded on the 12th July 2022 at 23.15 hours - a 40 page summary report, which can be downloaded above and a full report which can be downloaded here.
