Indigenous Maternal Infant Health and Well-being Lab

The Indigenous Maternal Infant Health and Well-Being (IMIHW) Lab supports innovative research on the social determinants of perinatal health within Indigenous communities and trains students in the use of participatory research approaches. Current research supported by the Lab include projects on (i) the effects of childbirth evacuation on perinatal depression and infant growth/development among the Inuit in Nunavik, (ii) the cross-cultural adaptation and validation of culturally appropriate perinatal mental health questionnaires, and (iii) discrimination and settler colonialism as barriers to Indigenous women’s access to culturally safe healthcare. Researchers in the Lab investigate these issues using quantitative and qualitative methodologies and participatory research approaches.
