Across the world, pregnant and birthing women are not always treated with dignity and respect. In some places, the experience women have been abusive. There is evidence, too, that midwives and other health carers are not always treating each other with kindness.

The videos all originate at one of the excellent Maternity and Midwifery Forum festivals that have been commissioned by Sue MacDonald (Co-editor, Mayes Midwifery Textbook for Midwives). This boxsets has been curated by Dr Jenny Hall.
