Europe Summit “Human Rights in Childbirth”

19.10.16

On 19th October 2016 MMM helped organise and was a speaker at the Human Rights in Childbirth Fourth European Summit.

It took place in Strasbourg (France), seat of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). This Summit of mothers, birth professionals, lawyers and other stakeholders occurred in the framework of the conference “Birth is a Human Rights Issue,” organized by Midwifery Today.

Leaders of national, consumer-led maternal health organizations from 14 countries across Europe presented reports on the status of women’s human rights, in law and in reality, in each national maternity care system.
It was highlighted that women do not lose their basic human rights once they become pregnant and they have the right to access the healthcare support that they, personally, need for a healthy birth.
