Race, Disparity and Perinatal Care

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Birth is generally thought of as a universal experience, but studies show that Indigenous and racialized families in Canada may not have the same outcomes as others. Infant mortality rates among Indigenous communities are twice the national average. Migrant mothers are twice as likely to experience pre- and post-natal depression, while pregnant refugees suffer from limited qualifications for insured health care. Three experts join The Agenda to talk about this perinatal health care gap.
