Women's Choice in Childbirth. Really?
This webinar is organised by Prof. Stella Villarmea in collaboration with the Center for Values Based Practice.

What do we mean by informed consent and shared decision-making in childbirth? Does informed consent just equate shared decision-making? Who, of all involved, has the final say?

Birth care proposes key questions relating to knowledge, freedom, and what it means to be a human being.
