Impact of Racial Microaggressions on Outcomes in Pregnancy (MOP) Study

Black women are far more likely to have pregnancy-related complications and are at increased risk of dying before and after childbirth compared to white women. Several biopsychosocial factors contribute to this health disparity, and one potential contributor is racial microaggressions within the medical experiences of black women. Growing evidence highlights the negative effects of racial microaggressions on physical and mental health in black women yet little is known about these effects during pregnancy and prenatal care. Therefore, we will ask mothers aged 21 to 35 residing in the United States who gave birth to a single infant within the last three years to report on their experiences of medically-related microaggressions during their lifetime, and during their pregnancy using an anonymous survey. In addition, women will be asked questions about their general and pregnancy-related health (e.g., pregnancy-related complications, labor and delivery, gestational diabetes), the health of their infant (e.g., birth weight, gestational age), demographic information, mental health status (e.g., depression, anxiety, post-partum depression), and health habits (e.g., sleep, tobacco and alcohol use).
