Michala, a previous Birthrights runner said:

I was so proud to run the London Marathon for Birthrights, a charity that I feel so passionate about as a midwife but also just as a human being as human rights in maternity care affects every single one of us, either on our own birthdays, whilst giving birth ourselves or supporting our loved ones. Supporting this small but mighty charity is something I can’t ever see myself not doing and I’m so proud to work with them.
