What needs to change? BBC News feature following recent MBRRACE-UK report

We know that black women are much more likely to have severe complications than white women, so it's clearly a really important area to focus on and work out why. The difficulty is that there is no one easy answer, it's actually a very complex picture.
As part of our programme of work, the NPEU will be undertaking indepth research focusing on the underlying reasons for these recent findings.
