Birthrights is the UK's only organisation dedicated to improving women's experience of pregnancy and childbirth by promoting respect for human rights. We believe that all women are entitled to respectful maternity care that protects their fundamental rights to dignity, autonomy, privacy and equality.


 We Need Your Support 

We are working hard but we are a small organisation, run entirely by volunteers and 100% funded by donations. Join with us and together we could:

 provide free advice to a pregnant women struggling to access her birthplace of choice

 deliver training and support to midwives and doctors ensuring informed consent is a reality for all

 assist a new mother who believes her rights have been violated

 support  vulnerable women to ensure equal access to respectful maternity care

 Help Our Dignity in Childbirth Campaign Reach Every    Woman 

We believe it is time to work hard to promote change and ask you to work alongside us. In 2014 we launched our flagship campaign focusing on 'dignity'; the guiding principle that underpins the human rights movement.

Our Dignity in Childbirth Forum on held on 16th October 2013, kick-started the initiative bringing together leading health professionals, lawyers, campaigners, academics and more to discuss the challenges that women face to their dignity, debate key areas of tension within the maternity services and explore and celebrate existing initiatives to promote dignity and respectful care.

Birthrights needs your help to make this ensure this campaign continues to reach women, health professionals, policy makers and all those who can join with us to effect change. 

Whether you can make a one-off gift to support women's rights or a much-needed regular donation to ensure our work can continue, with your support we could:

 commission vital new research in to dignity in childbirth in the UK
