Abstract

Background

Ten journal databases plus grey literature and theses databases were searched for relevant material dated 1986-2018. Articles were included if they were about Indigenous women from Australia, New Zealand, Canada or the USA; care was provided anytime during the perinatal period, in an urban area; and cultural security (or variations of this term) were used.

Results

The scoping review results showed substantial qualitative evidence on Indigenous women’s experience during the perinatal period in urban areas. In-depth analysis of these studies is required to inform future practice and policy on what works and what needs improvement. Culturally secure midwifery care shows promising results.
