Title:
A qualitative study on the food habits and related beliefs of pregnant British Bangladeshis
Authors:
Yeasmin, Syeda Fahmida; Regmi, Krishna
Abstract:
It is quite challenging to deal with the health care needs of migrant populations in general, especially pregnant women, due to their diverse sociopolitical and cultural beliefs and practices. In this article, we aim to examine and understand the food habits and beliefs of pregnant British Bangladeshis using qualitative methods. Our results indicate some positive associations between the increased intakes of particular foods to ensure healthy outcomes. We also note that migration affects pregnant Bangladeshi women's physical and mental conditions. We conclude that effective health care and awareness about traditional food beliefs and habits, and their subsequent reflection into the national and local policy agendas, may bring forth positive changes and improve the overall health of pregnant women.
