OBSTETRIC VIOLENCE:

WHAT IT IS AND

WHAT COMMUNITY CAN DO ABOUT IT 

 

IS THIS course FOR ME?

 

Only you can decide.

Your role in healthcare doesn’t matter as much as your inclination to be a

change maker…

leader…

advocate…

innovator.

This course is for folks who are ready to learn and take action.

It is not for anyone who doubts the existence or prevalence of obstetric violence.

 The issue of obstetric violence is Cristen’s life work.  Since 2012, she has been working at community, national, and international levels to lift the veil on the epidemic of obstetric violence, especially in facility-based settings, as well as to advocate for change.  She has helped to bring major lawsuits for obstetric violence; led multiple legal advocacy efforts and media campaigns about obstetric violence, birth trauma, and human rights in childbirth; and educated hundreds of birth and healthcare workers on these issues through her classes, lectures, and publications.
