Your rights

What are your rights in pregnancy and childbirth?

It’s simple

  • Every woman has a right to receive safe and appropriate maternity care.
  • Every woman has a right to maternity care that respects her fundamental human dignity.
  • Every woman has a right to privacy and confidentiality.
  • Every woman is free to make choices about her own pregnancy and childbirth, even if her caregivers do not agree with her.
  • Every woman has a right to equality and freedom from discrimination.
