The Raham Project is founded by Peterborough-based midwife Faiza Rehman. The Raham Project provides:
- a safe and non-judgemental space for mothers and partners from ethnic communities
- a maternity support network for ethnic mothers and their partners
- awareness of the perinatal period, including a focus on maternal mental wellbeing
- a platform that links families back to their maternity care providers so their care needs are being recognised
- a means to help shape local services for the future, based on people’s experiences and feedback
Their website also has a Hub of information written by midwives, covering pregnancy, birth, early parenting, mental wellbeing, and baby loss.
You can also find events – online and face-to-face, and you can volunteer if you’d like.
