Human Rights in Childbirth HRIC Italy 2017

Anna Maria Rossetti is the principal for postgraduate midwifery throughout Italy based at their school in Florence. 

Their emphasis is on physiological birth. Respecting the nature of hormones anatomy physiology movement in labour, and women’s rights. 

Their school was founded and run by the respected Midwifery author Verena Schmidt. 

This conference had a mostly Italian flavour with osteticia or midwives from across Italy.  Gail Tully from the USA was there teaching spinning babies with breech workshops.

The Spanish home birth Midwifery Inma presented along with neonatologist Massimo with great passion in support of babies rights. A women’s rights lawyer joined us for a morning with plans to follow up on the united nations reporting to highlight areas of improvement for the Italian maternity system. 

A few independent midwives were present. They face great challenges, yet continue to provide a individual service to women and their families. One worked in the UK until the regulator stopped all independent missives from practicing in December 2016.

Mediation and Hric were presented by me with the use of drama and aikido. 

Preventing and resolving conflict are useful in all areas including maternity care.

Osteopathic and energetic aspects were presented by Diego. 

These global lessons can benefit birthing everywhere.
