Thank you so much to the women who inspired this article and are fighting for the cause in a million different ways. Helping to improve maternity care in Australia– one woman, one baby and one birth at a time.
Women believe it’s normal to be violated during birth
Birth should be about women and their babies, not hospitals and their policies
No-one is outraged about the injustices and violations pregnant women are facing
The biggest reason we need a revolution is because improving the pregnancy and birthing journey and outcomes for women is even considered revolutionary! Pregnant women are human beings – this should not be a revolutionary concept!
We need a revolution in maternity care in Australia because WOMEN AND BABIES DESERVE BETTER
Why do you believe we need a revolution? And how are you contributing to the cause?
Allthough moms aren't paying directly for hospitals births, my guess is that Australian hospitals are still running to make profits, and whatever funding they get to pay for the births is not coming primarily out of the pockets of the hospital owners. In other words, Australia has regressive taxation/Australian maternity funding isn't coming out of the pockets of the very richest Australians (though it should be). I find it hard to believe the richest Australians would tolerate paying for the bulk of unnecessary medical procures without even complaining.
