I attended the ‘Women’s Voices Conference’ which works towards to inspiring, empowering, and demonstrating, the importance of women centred care, in our maternity services. I’m not a medical professional, but I was interested in understanding more about the charities and organisations providing support to pregnant women.
The day itself was a coming together of a variety of women (and a few men), who were either clinical midwives, student midwives, doulas, charity representatives and keen campaigners, all working towards improving women’s rights throughout pregnancy and birth. I was unaware just how much support there was for women, but I felt incredibly inspired by all of the women that part. If you wish to find out more, please follow the links below.
