Human rights violations related to childbearing are an international phenomenon. Such violations have only recently been recognized by organizations like the World Health Organization and the United Nations, and avenues for accountability and redress remain limited across the globe. Nonetheless, empowering health care providers, including lactation professionals, with the confidence and courage to be human rights defenders is a critical step in vanquishing these harms and protecting people from conception through lactation.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1. Recognize human rights documents and principles that protect people in the perinatal period.

Objective 2. Empower birth and lactation providers to see themselves as human rights defenders.

Objective 3. Gain familiarity with accountability tools and strategies.
