BAME Birthing With Colour is an initiative that highlights maternity issues facing the BAME communities.
The programme is led by Helen Knower, Director of Midwifery, Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust and organised by
The Brun Bear Foundation. Proceeds from BAME Birthing With Colour's event programme support projects that resonate with its core mission and values. This ranges from a bursary scheme to the funding of wellbeing wallets for expectant mothers. The organising committee work on an entirely pro bono basis.
Activities include monthly webinars and a one-day virtual conference comprising a mix of paper presentations, workshops, panel discussions, networking and classes.
