My Highly Abmormal, Normal Birth

So excited that the first Human Rights in Childbirth Conference is underway in India. I am honored to contribute a post for the blog and looking forward to the conference! HRiC is an international organisation that advocates for maternal healthcare that respects and fulfills the full range of women’s human rights during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum a major need gap that no one is talking about!
Register for the conference to know more!
