Can we think of #feminism as getting back control over our bodies and #birth? I spoke to Ceri Durham who wants women to take charge of their birth, ask questions to health professionals and know their #birthrights and choices. She has been running Tower Hamlets Positive Birth and Homebirth Support Group for 10 years; it’s a safe space where pregnant women and new mothers meet and discuss birth as a normal part of their lives, not as somethings awful or scary. Women pass knowledge to each other. One person at a time, Ceri is trying to bring change in the birth world.
Nehwham mothers organise ‘a feed in’ to protest against shaming breastfeeding and giving formula without mother’s consent on the neonatal ward at Newham University Hospital and get noticed by media and local council. Check out this video to find out what they demand.
This is a vertical video I made specifically for Facebook and Instagram.
