The Right to Choice in Maternity Services: Our Submission to The National Maternity Review

Birthrights was asked to provide information and guidance to the National Maternity Review on the legal framework that supports women’s right to choice in maternity care.

You can read our submission below which details that women do have the right to make choices in maternity care based on a number of different sources, but that the legal framework could be strengthened and clarified.

We hope that the National Maternity Review team will use this information to further clarify, strengthen and integrate women’s right to choice in childbirth as they publish their recommendations.
