NHS support for pregnant black and ethnic minority women

The NHS is rolling out additional support for pregnant Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority (BAME) women, as new research shows heightened risks facing women from minority groups.

Analysis from Oxford University shows black pregnant women are eight times more likely to be admitted to hospital with COVID-19, while Asian women are four times as likely.
