Birth Story

I couldn’t recommend Maureen more. The hypnobirthing course was amazing and she made it so easy to understand and gave us all the facts and information that we needed to feel prepared, empowered and confident throughout our birth. She demystified so much about birth and gave us some fantastic tools that we utilized throughout it. These tools were so helpful and kept us in control and grounded where needed. Her support throughout the course was brilliant and afterwards I went to her to go through our birth story and she helped me to make peace with some parts of it. I loved the way that my partner was fully included in the entire process and he was completely supportive of using all the hypnobirthing tools, something that he was slightly skeptical of beforehand. I now recommend hypnobirthing to anyone that will listen, and I would highly recommend having Maureen taking you through the course.

 

Thanks again and I’ll be in touch for baby number 2 (one day!)

Reproductive Rights are Human Rights

REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS:

 

Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death. They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe or how you choose to live your life and are based in a set of human rights principles’. These are sometimes called the FREDA principles - Fairness, Respect, Equality, Dignity, and Autonomy.

 

YOU HAVE A RIGHT:

 

·      To safe ethical maternity care

·      To self determination

·      To be fully informed about your care with current evidence and research and not just hospital policy and protocol – informed consent

·      To make choices that are right for you and your family

·      To accept or to decline care

·      To choose care outside of current policy and guidance

·      To be treated with dignity, respect and free from neglect

·      To privacy and family support

·      To be treated equally regardless of race, disability or gender

NICE Quality Statement 7 (2012) States - Patients are made aware that they have the right to choose, accept or decline treatment and these decisions are respected and supported.  

The White Ribbon Alliance state that to improve maternal and new-born health is to promote self-care as a vital component of any comprehensive maternal and new-born healthcare strategy. We know that when women are equipped with information and resources, they make the best health decisions for themselves and their families’. www.whiteribbonalliance.org/self-care
