To have her VOICE heard and her CHOICES respected. Dignity and self-determination are human rights and women should not lose access to them because they are pregnant.
To choose the people that surround and support her during her birth. To be supported in the ways that uniquely serve her, her baby and her husband, wife, or partner.
To define her own birth. On her terms. To say, "No, not that," and, "Yes, This." To make choices that others would not. To ask for advice or reject it. To change her mind.
Full access to the best, most up-to-date information. Including complete disclosure of both risks and benefits. Even when what is disclosed is, "we don't know enough," or, "the data is limited," or "the research is biased in this way," or, "I don't have experience with that but here is what history and other mothers tell us." Women and their families are completely capable of reading, researching and evaluating their choices. They can be trusted to understand (or directed to tools that help them do so) the various positive and negative qualities of information based on science, intuition, culture, history, and belief. Too often families are sold half the story as, "the way it is and the way it will be." Limited information places grievous limits on fully informed consent and prevents families from embracing the rights and responsibilities inherent in birth and parenting.
Loving, mindful compassionate care that first supports her normal physiology and the normal physiology of her baby. Loving, mindful, compassionate medical care if medical care becomes necessary
