This forum will explore the strengths and limitations of human rights and respectful care frameworks in advancing maternity reform in Australia. It aims to bring together the policy, legal and women’s health communities along with professional providers and birth consumer groups to discuss strategies for improving the quality of care for birthing women and those supporting them.
