Protecting human rights in childbirth

Registered Charity Number 1151152

For Birthworkers and Doulas


    • For all participants to understand where human rights come from and how they apply to maternity care.  
    • For all participants to feel confident in identifying actions they can take to help a client address a human rights breach.  
    • For all participants to feel empowered to support clients to advocate for themselves. 

We want to make sure that our training is relevant to the work that your organisation does, and the challenges that your staff and volunteers come up against. We can tailor case studies to ensure that we discuss the concerns or themes that your team have identified in their own work.   

We request feedback from all participants straight after the session, which we then anonymise and share with the organiser. All participants receive a certificate which outlines what session they attended and what the objectives of that session were, which they can use for CPD purposes. Participants also receive a PDF of the slides and access to a Padlet full of resources, so that they can continue the learning.
