In our very first full-length episode, we break down what it means to give informed consent and how to set yourself up for a well-informed experience from pregnancy through postpartum. We believe that informed consent and body autonomy are the foundation for a positive birth experience, let’s get started! According to the American Medical Association’s Code of Ethics, “informed consent to medical treatment is fundamental in both ethics and law. Patients have the right to receive information and ask questions about recommended treatments so that they can make well-considered decisions about care. Successful communication in the patient-physician relationship fosters trust and supports shared decision making”.
