Abstract

Autistic people face significant disparities in their experiences of healthcare services compared to non-autistic people, with autistic adults reporting lower satisfaction with staff communication, and higher odds of unmet healthcare needs relating to their physical health, mental health, and prescription medications.1 These difficulties are also apparent when accessing perinatal care services. It is essential that we address this ensuring the protected characteristic of disability under the Equality Act 2010 is honoured. In this article, Sophie Rayner, Nicolette Porter and Emilie Edwards discuss how midwives can provide sensitive antenatal care for autistic women and birthing people.
