Birth Trauma Awareness Week: Informed Consent 💖

This year’s theme is “Informed Consent,” highlighting its crucial role in respectful maternity care. Everyone deserves to understand their choices, risks, and alternatives during childbirth, ensuring decisions are made with full knowledge and respect.

Unfortunately, in healthcare, this principle is often ignored or misunderstood, potentially causing trauma for birthing individuals and families.
