Other, more promising movements for change are those created by independent persons and organisations such as:
Five X More – an organisation co-founded by Tinuke Awe, whose pains and concerns were ignored while giving birth, leaving her without pain relief for the entirety of her labour, which ultimately led to her exhaustion and assisted birth requiring forceps. Due to this awful experience, Tinuke Awe started the Five X More campaign to help empower women of colour.
BAME Maternity Matters or “Birthing With Colour” – another promising group that also seeks to inform women of colour about healthcare and pregnancy services.
The Black Lives Matter movement has also helped to educate people about racism and encourage action for change while exposing the way that racism negatively impacts the care people of colour receive in hospitals and other such environments.
