16. Migrant women's experiences of respect, autonomy and mistreatment in Icelandic maternity care @ Room 3 - BBB

Speaker: Edythe Mangindin

Facilitator: Jane Houston

As the Icelandic population has changed from being homogenous to being a multicultural society with 15.6% immigrants, it is important to address the health status and needs of migrant childbearing women as well as access to the healthcare system and experience of maternity care in Iceland. Currently, research is very limited. 

Objective: The objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that migrant women experience less respect and autonomy and more mistreatment than native-born Icelandic women in maternity care. Method: An online survey including internationally standardized instruments measuring respect (MOR index), autonomy (MADM scale), mistreatment (MCPC indicators) and childbirth experience (CEQ2) will be sent out using convenience sampling. Participants: Women who have received services and given birth in Iceland 2015-2020. Data analysis will include descriptive analysis, logistic regression and regression models. Predictions: Migrant women experience less respect, less autonomy and more mistreatment than native-born women. (Data collection in progress)
