Title: Perinatal Care for Women from Africa with Refugee Backgrounds: Intersections with Psychological Wellbeing
Author: Aldam, Isadora
Issue Date: 2020
School/Discipline: School of Psychology
Abstract: People with refugee backgrounds face poorer psychological outcomes than general populations post-resettlement. Contributing to these outcomes are post-migration challenges including experiences with healthcare services. These services include perinatal healthcare, which is essential for many refugee women living in Australia; many of whom are from Africa. Positive perinatal healthcare experiences are pivotal for ensuring women’s access to ongoing care and healthy psychological outcomes. However, disparities persist between refugee and non-refugee populations. This review will critically evaluate the evidence regarding African refugee women’s psychological wellbeing following experiences with perinatal healthcare services, and will inform an empirical study in the Australian context.
