Collaboration with the Summer School, ‘Humanising Birth’, online/ University of Utrecht, July 2022

Globally, the call for the humanization of childbirth is loud and urgent. The rate childbirth-related trauma, maternal, and neonatal morbidity and mortality in BIPOC communities, and the lack of midwifery for people of all genders, testify that we are not yet getting it right. Midwifery is often proposed as a way to ensure emotionally and physically safe care for all. While believing in the potential of midwifery, we must be radically critical of how midwifery itself is formed by past and present suppressive structures based on class, race, gender, and coloniality.
