A recent report in The Telegraph has revealed that half of UK women are not getting the birth care they want.
The findings, announced at the inaugural Birthright’s Dignity in Childbirth Conference in London last week concluded that British women are not receiving a dignified birth.
Mumsnet conducted a survey on 1100 women and found that only 50% of women in the UK are receiving their ideal birth care. A further 26% were not able to choose where to give birth and 24% didn’t consent to intimate procedures such as forceps delivery, vaginal examination or cervical sweeps.
