#humanrightsinchildbirth and #personalisedcare should be absolutely core to what we do - glad this is becoming the case in mainstream training @RCObsGyn

Fantastic to see that 76% attending our evening workshop at @RCObsGyn last week planned to change their practice as a result of what they learnt and 100% would recommend Birthrights training to others! To find out more about our training contact us on info@birthrights.org.uk

"Around 70% of midwives witness poor, disrespectful, or indifferent interpersonal care of women", leading to Secondary Traumatic Stress (STS). Research by @jpmidwifery confirms that if we don't care for midwives they can't care for women https://www.aims.org.uk/journal/item/traumatised-midwives-traumatised-women … @AIMS_online

It's so important that women who lose babies are treated with respect & dignity & are not left in situations that make an awful situation worse. This story contains shocking egs of disrespectful care but also an innovative idea to improve care for families

More than 1 in 10 women in the UK will develop a mental illness during pregnancy or the 1st postnatal year. It is essential that the mental health of all women is monitored, discussed and treated in the same way as her physical health. #MentalHealthAwarnessWeek #EveryonesBusiness

It was a pleasure and privilege to close the day with a very important topic- choice outside of guidance. The tide is turning, the room was engaged and receptive @L6UPY @RCObsGyn @birthrightsorg

We always remember how we are spoken to & made to feel. Important to recognise the difference about Informed Vs Coerced consent. Need to remind ourselves about how we refer to women as well. Respect her opinion, it is her experience and she may actually know more. @birthrightsorg

And more on this...which has been viewed many times...I hope by people wanting to change birth culture positively! https://blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2018/02/08/humanising-birth-does-the-language-we-use-matter/ …

Hear, hear! Language and indeed body language are so important in signalling who is really in control of decision making, and whether women are really respected. Thank you @BerksMaternity and colleagues for the original article and now this great blog!
