The Association had been working on mobilizing women for the humanization of institutional birth in Hungary for years. Early 2016 was a breakthrough when, as an outcome of our EMMA Hub workshops, 800 women (and their families) gathered in 4 cities to protest for maternity care that respects women’s fundamental rights. More than 200 women shared their stories and messages publicly in our social-media campaign.
This event was the birth of the “Respectful maternity care!” Movement, which is the first Hungarian grassroot movement for women’s birth rights.
