@BorisJohnson If you managed to take the time to decide that it was Ok for groups of more than 6 to go grouse shooting, for people to go to pubs and restaurants with people outside of thiet household, then you can take the time to realise that this is cruel and unnecessary. #covidmaternity

@BorisJohnson Make an easy decision, let women have thier partners with them throughout child birth Let me have that support, let him be there Its appalling that people are being denied that basic support at such an important time, just one person, that's all we are asking for #covidmaternity

Our Programmes Director @mariacbooker is featured in @BBCfileon4 tonight at 8pm talking about the impact of covid restrictions in maternity care that @birthrightsorg has seen through our work #CovidMaternity #ButNotMaternity https://t.co/og4FHTrxNF

Our Programmes Director @mariacbooker is quoted in this piece about v worrying new research from @birth_better. Women described feeling "devastated" & "powerless" in the face of #CovidMaternity restrictions. Specialist mental health support stopped for nearly half of women. https://t.co/aLpoU4vpfW

These are not words that women should be associating with their birth. "Empowered", "listened to" and "respected" are what we aim towards. The #covidmaternity situation is likely to leave lasting effects 😢 https://t.co/4YEuSpPl8u

Our report shows that 9 in 10 women’s birth choices were impacted by COVID https://t.co/93rSwZKA5B

Earlier this month our Programmes Director @mariacbooker spoke at #IME2020 conference about the issues and experiences we have seen in #CovidMaternity and how to run a rights respecting maternity service in a pandemic. Check it out here ⬇️https://t.co/rFkRktEuyv

An excellent, clear summary of what amounts to a 'proportionate interference' with the rights of birthing people - including the importance of considering exceptions from restrictions on an individual basis. #CovidMaternity https://t.co/fJ3nNo4Nwn

Once again we argue that even during #COVID19, blanket bans are an insufficiently nuanced tool which fail to appropriately centre the birthing person and their welfare. #COVIDmaternity #childbirth #medicallaw https://t.co/KVMCrQA5Oc

New paper out with the wonderful @Anna_Nelson95 @BioethicsUoM on homebirthing and birth restrictions during COVID-19 #birth #medicallaw @birthrightsorg @DurhamCELLS @DurhamLawSchool https://t.co/3pXkSMSqtX

This is a great paper @ECRomanis @Anna_Nelson95 I wish I had written it myself! Agree absolutely about the need to centre rights, welfare & experiences of birthing ppl when services respond to challenges like #CovidMaternity. Great to see @birthrightsorg experience reflected too https://t.co/A2fOtcyyIF

Framework to assist NHS trusts to reintroduce access for partners, visitors and other supporters of pregnant women in English maternity services https://t.co/tSUWNLInC9

This is very welcome. Partners not being able to accompany women to appointments is something parents and professionals have been telling us is a big problem during the pandemic. Trusts in England must now take urgent action to put this in to practice. #covidmaternity https://t.co/pQiGXb7JTk

New #NHS guidance means partners of pregnant women in England can again attend scans & appointments. Parents told us this was a big worry during #Covid19 & we've been calling for these changes. All Trusts urgently need to put this into practice. https://t.co/tSfG3pnnLX https://t.co/7V8bYlYp5s

Delighted to see this guidance finally in place. NHS Trusts across England must act urgently to ensure it is implemented. No one should ever have to be on their own when hearing the devastating news that their baby has died. #covidmaternity #babyloss https://t.co/LjDMsWQX0v
