My organisation, electivecesarean.com, has joined The White Ribbon Alliance For safe Motherhood, whose Mission, Vision and Principles include working to create a world where:
*It is a woman's basic human right to achieve optimal health care throughout pregnancy and childbirth for herself and her newborns.
*Women are empowered to demand quality, safe and respectful motherhood services and to help other women to do the same.
*Women and newborns have access to essential and life-saving motherhood services and information.*Governments set policies in collaboration with women, their communities and other stakeholders to implement programs in support of safe motherhood.
*The White Ribbon Alliance respects, protects and encourages individual, gender, cultural and social diversity.
