Your body, your rules: Understanding your rights during labour

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Jaime-Leigh Hawkins is a doula who says women need to understand their rights in the birthing suite. For Jaime-Leigh, birth is not a time to hand over control of your choices to a medical professional. She argues that every woman needs to empower themselves with education around birth and their rights during birth to avoid post-birth trauma.

Jaime points to information from Maternity Choices Australia.
