Black Middle-Class Women and Pregnancy Loss: A Qualitative Inquiry is the first qualitative research case study of its kind focused on Black American born middle-class professional married women who have all lived through infant loss. This study examines the Infant Mortality disparity (blacks 12.40, whites 5.35) outside the poverty paradigm, with probable implications for minority groups in England and Wales, (having a similar racial history to the U.S) with Caribbean and Pakistani IM rates being more than twice that of white British babies.
