Protecting human rights in childbirth

Registered Charity Number 1151152

Welcome to Birthrights!

Welcome to Birthrights! We are a new organisation dedicated to improving women’s experiences of pregnancy and childbirth by promoting respect for human rights.

We officially launch today with this exciting new website, providing clear and accessible information on human rights and the law in pregnancy and childbirth. Check out our FAQs and our factsheets.

Birthrights is a small organisation with a big mission. We have plans for nationwide campaigns in 2013 raising awareness of dignity in childbirth and protecting vulnerable women from poor treatment. The law is very clear on many of the issues that women face in the maternity system. We plan to use it as a powerful tool for change.

Stay informed about what we are up to and sign up to our newsletter.

Thanks for your interest,

The Birthrights Team
