15–22 May 2011 in Vienna and Lower Austria
To be able to make a good decision concerning place of birth, OB/GYN or/and midwife and birthing method it is important to collect information and to be aware of all choices you have in pregnancy and birth. Knowledge about your rights as a pregnant and birthing woman strengthens your position in conversation and conflict with doctors, midwives and clinic staff to enforce your demands and ideas. As parents-to-be you are clients and you can accept expertises, advices and assistance, but also have the option to choose freely and determine which medical (routine) measures you or your baby will undergo. Ideally you are sure of what you want and what you don’t want in advance.
