Consent: Rights in Childbirth


This 3 hour zoom workshop is for doulas and others working in the maternity world. We will be talking about maternity rights, consent and the law. As well as the theory, our aim is to give participants and chance to explore scenarios and work on practical ways that we can support our clients when they are being coerced or it feels like they have reached a dead end. This workshop is run by 3 very experienced doulas and birth activists, Emma Ashworth, Verina Henchy and Maddie McMahon. Emma is the author of the AIMS Guide to Your Rights in Pregnancy and Birth and hugely experienced maternity advocate. Verina is an AIMS helpline volunteer, AIMS Trustee and doula trainer Maddie is an AIMS helpline volunteer, doula trainer and author of Why Doulas Matter and Why Mothering Matters.

“Really, really useful content and I know I will use it with every client from now on”

“Really useful to hear about different types of consent and laws around assault. Super helpful signposts for how we can support clients…and helped with blame culture and self care when working in tricky situations”

“Thank you for simplifying the issue of consent as much as possible. I wish I’d had this knowledge years ago.”

“The session was faultless”

“I am so impressed with your ability to open the room’s access to emotion yet still keep time to seamlessly. Hats off to another fantastic workshop, exploring a tricky, complex subject as thoroughly as possible.”
