This video by the charity Birthrights encourages women and birthing people to speak out when they experience poor quality care. It highlights the right to safe and appropriate maternity care that respects individuals' dignity, privacy and confidentiality and is given equally and without discrimination.
In the video, three women tell their stories of poor care experiences in labour and after birth. They talk about racial discrimination, procedures that were done to them without their consent, and not being listened to when they knew they needed help. They highlight the importance of complaints in helping services improve.
