Conference: European day of safe birth and motherhood

Sep 22, 2016


Every pregnant woman hopes for a healthy baby and an uncomplicated pregnancy. However, even in Europe more than 2000 women and adolescent girls die from problems related to pregnancy and childbirth every year. 1 in 10 don’t have access to medical care during the first month of pregnancy.

Safe childbirth and safe motherhood in Europe are important for parents, midwives and their associations as well as for politics and medical services. Therefore our debates want to focus on the status of safe birth in all member states. We’d like to ask what politics can do to give all mothers the guarantee of a safe birth and maternal health.

29th September 2016 in the European Parliament – 09.00-12.00 CET
