European Union - On 19th October 2016, MMM helped organise and was a speaker at the Fourth European Summit on Human Rights in Childbirth
The Summit took place in Strasbourg (France), the seat of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). It gathers mothers, birth professionals, lawyers and other stakeholders within 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 practice, 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.
