Actor Juliet Stevenson introduces this short film about the risks facing pregnant women in the asylum system in the UK. Unlike other women who find pregnancy an exciting and hopeful time, pregnancy for many asylum seeking women is a time of upheaval and distress due to the UK Border Agency's policies of moving them across the country to where accommodation is available. This leads to women uprooted from their friends, family and healthcare, leaving them isolated and vulnerable. The Refugee Council and Maternity Action are calling for all women to be allowed Dignity In Pregnancy www.refugeecouncil.org.uk/dignityinpregnancy #DignityinPregnancy
