Supporting Women's Autonomy in Childbirth (Halifax training)

When: 18th November 2019
Venue: The Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre, Hopwood Lane, Halifax HX1 5ER
Cost: £55 (early bird rates of £45 available until 1st Oct)

Training session by Birthrights for anybody interested in maternity care. Book before 1st October for the early bird discount.

This workshop will give an introduction to human rights law and principles and why they matter in childbirth.

- Can safe care also be personalised care?
- What really is informed consent? What does the law tell us to do?
- Do women have a right to out of guidelines care?
- Could we do more to prevent birth trauma rather than treating it?

The workshop will consider what a human rights centred maternity service looks like, and how those working with pregnant women, can support them to make informed choices and to have those choices respected.
