Protecting human rights in childbirth

Registered Charity Number 1151152

Work for us


We have no vacancies at present.


We rely on the support of our amazing volunteers, including our Trustees and many other supporters. Volunteers have helped us to run events or stands at conferences, deliver our training, provide legal advice, support our communications, research and campaigns, and spread the word in their communities, workplaces and universities.

If you have skills, expertise or time you feel could benefit Birthrights, please contact us. We will hold your details on file and be in touch when an opportunity arises.

Associate Trainers

Our training sessions are run by two trainers – one with in-depth knowledge of human rights law and how it applies to maternity care and one who is a midwife or doctor with practical experience of delivering human rights centred care. If you are interested in becoming a Birthrights Associate Trainer, please contact us.
