Birth Rights & COVID-19: Socio-Legal Reflections on the Problem of Unconsented Vaginal Examinations

Press/Media: Blogs and social media

Description

In the previous post in this series we provided an overview of the problem of unconsented vaginal examinations during labour and reflected briefly on some of the key discussions and themes which emerged during our workshop.  In this blog, we explore each of the three key themes in more depth.  Our hope is that this reflection sparks further consideration and conversation about this issue and what can be done to tackle it.
