Description: This research paper was conducted as part of a class at Clark University. The researchers conducted a focus group with immigrant women and interviews with health care practitioners who serve the African population in Worcester. The findings were that community and social networks are important factors in a women’s experience during pregnancy and that there are differences in the way healthcare providers and patients understand interactions with each other.
