What is Freedom for Birth? This powerful excerpt from freedomforbirth.com tells just a little bit about this worldwide revolution.
- “Freedom for Birth” is more than just a film. It marks the beginning of a movement that will focus global attention on the violations of women’s rights during childbirth all around the world.
- All women should have the right, protected by law, to decide where and how they give birth.
- The problem is that the rise of a dominant obstetric “machine” is robbing women of this right.
- The result is that many women are being subjected to medical interventions and c-sections they neither want or need.
- Tragically, midwives, the very guardians of normal birth, are being persecuted and criminally prosecuted to the extent that some have even been imprisoned.
- “Freedom for Birth” will highlight the human rights abuses happening right now in North America, Europe, Australia and beyond.
- And, the film will offer up a solution that can help protect womens’ rights
- And that solution involves you!
