1. Baiden, Deborah. Sociocultural Factors Affecting Mental Health Service Utilization by African Newcomer Women Following Childbirth in Canada.

Degree: 2019, University of Western Ontario

Immigration to Canada and thereupon giving birth are life-changing events for newcomer women. The stress of resettlement and being a new mother may place newcomer women at risk of mental health challenges. However, there is a paucity of literature focused specifically on Black African newcomer women’s perspectives of mental health care after experiencing childbirth in Canada. This qualitative study explored sociocultural factors that impact on Black African immigrant women’s perception of mental health and mental health service utilization within a year after childbirth in Canada. A purposive sample of 10 newcomer women from Africa were interviewed individually. A thematic analysis of data revealed three main themes: 1) Postpartum sanity, 2) Help-seeking and treatment preferences, and 3) Barriers and facilitators. Findings from this study have the potential to inform culturally safe and racially sensitive nursing practice to meet the postpartum mental health needs of newcomer African women in Canada.
