|Abstrakt EN:||Studies show substantial health disparities among migrant and non-migrant women in terms of their birth outcomes and overall perinatal health. Migration is seen as a risk factor for health of women and become migrant mother means “crisis of the crisis” (Song 2016: 38). The aim of the presentation is to discuss several ambiguities which occurs when researching maternal health of migrant. We reviewed 124 studies published in English and Czech language focused on maternal health of migrant women. Researchers show that culture is important factor influencing the access and quality of maternity care and studies compare various categories of migrant and/or non-migrant women. First ambiguity is related to the definition when a woman belong to one or the other category. Second ambiguity is related to epidemiological paradox. This paradox points out the relation between acculturation and birth outcomes. Song, J-E. et al. 2016. A qualitative review of immigrant women's experiences of maternal adaptation in South Korea.
