We held our first focus group exploring how to improve pregnant women's understanding and communication skills associated with women's health, pregnancy and childbirth for those who cannot speak English.
It was held at the Royal London Hospital in Tower Hamlets. 20 women attended with 22 babies and all their prams!! We asked them about being pregnant, what problems they feel exist and what information they would find useful. Their stories were moving and confirmed that our project is really needed.
"I didn’t understand what they were saying when delivering my baby. They offered an epidural and because I didn’t understand I just said yes.”
