What do people say about Birthrights training?

“Reflecting on Birthrights course. Highly recommend to healthcare professionals working in maternity care. I have greater understanding of applying human rights, as well as tools for difficult conversations. Always remember, you may not agree with her decision, but it’s not your decision, it’s hers.”

Trainee Obstetrician, London

“I just wanted to write and say an enormous thank you to Birthrights for the hard work and excellent delivery that makes your study days some of the best I have ever attended. ‘Thought-provoking’ doesn’t really cover it – left me totally rethinking my practice and my interactions with women. So grateful that I got to hear the session – Jo and Simon were awesome and spoke with both passion and extensive knowledge.”
