|Abstrakt EN:||The research focuses on maternal health of migrant women in the Czech Republic. We are interested in women’s expectations, experiences and in the context of their pregnancy and birth stories. We conducted interviews with migrant mothers and workers from helping professions, especially social workers. Social workers are those by whom some migrant women seek advices and help in various situations occurring in their everyday life (and also issues connected with pregnancy and birth) in the Czech Republic. Most of social work with migrants realise non-governmental organisations. NGO’s play also important part in integration processes of migrants in the Czech Republic. The current atmosphere (not only) in Czech society brings many challenges and difficulties for the social work(ers). Especially there intersects two kinds of negative attitudes: 1) negative perception of the migration situation in the world and 2) anti-NGO’s attitudes. This increases the obstacles and insecurity for not only the migrants, but also social workers.|
