Respectful Maternal Care - Every Woman's Birthing Right!

The dehumanizing treatment of mothers during childbirth by health professionals has become a global topic of concern. Disrespect and abuse during childbirth can include physical, sexual or verbal abuse, stigma, and discrimination, low standards of care, absence of rapport between health personnel and mothers as well as health system conditions and constraints. Respectful maternity care aims to end the disrespect and abuse of mothers by focusing on the interpersonal aspect of maternity care. It emphasizes on the fundamental rights of both the mother and the infant and recognizes that all women need and deserve respectful care during childbirth. This lecture is the first in the series which focuses on how healthcare providers can bring RMC, how health facilities must respect the beliefs, traditions, and culture of expectant women.
