[Obstetric violence is GBV] If you’ve experienced birth trauma, you know it isn’t something that just goes away as soon as you give birth.

According to our #CountOurBirths survey, the impact of obstetric violence extends far beyond the delivery room.

Obstetric violence is a form of gender-based violence that impacts the physical and emotional well-being of mothers and people seeking reproductive healthcare 💔

44.8% of the mothers we surveyed said that their experiences with obstetric violence had affected their mental health. Additionally, 21.5% of survey respondents said it had affected their confidence in bonding with and caring for their baby 😔
