I have been confirmed as a panelist at the Human Rights in Childbirth Conference on May 31 - June 1, 2012 at The Hague University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands.
If you attend, please take a few seconds to fill out the box on the form which asks how you learned about the conference with some variation of Unnecesarean, The Unnecesarean, Jill Arnold, CesareanRates.com or anything that will let them know that I referred you. Without the benefit of institutional support and without a spare $1500 in my pocket, I asked if they would be willing to help me get there and was relieved that I could help them by filling seats.
If you are in the Netherlands, then please ga naar de conferentie en vertel hen dat ik van je verzonden.
For those of you who want to stay put and attend the conference from home, you will want to get a group together and sign up for the webinar for half-off just for saying I referred you!
Please read more and reserve your spot today. My new Dutch friends can now mock me for using Google Translate to destroy their language. Het spijt me.
Human Rights in Childbirth Conference
Healthcare in childbirth is of great importance to society. This conference takes a unique, consumer perspective. It will focus on the legal and human rights issues arising at the intersection of childbirth and healthcare. The conference is being organized and hosted by affected groups, a legal research institute, and an international law program at The Hague University. Therefore, it creates a unique opportunity for a wide spectrum of stakeholders to share perspectives on the issues relating to birthing women and their families.
Doctors, midwives, lawyers, and parents agree on the general principle of client-centered care in childbirth. The conference will be a platform to explore the practical aspects of human rights in 21st century healthcare systems, and how those systems can both maximize safety and respect the dignity of the women they support.
