Please consider submitting your story if you have experienced abuse at the hands of medical professionals during childbirth. I know that it is difficult to break the silence about these experiences, but it is important to let others know that this is a widespread problem.
The stories are being sought by two organizations, Human Rights in Childbirth and the Birth Rights Bar Association, to present to the court in an amicus brief. The brief will focus specifically on procedures that were done during childbirth without consent. The lawyers plan to use the brief in arguing the case of Rinat Dray, who is suing a Staten Island hospital for performing a c-section without her consent.
