Join me as I interview Jesusa Ricoy Olariaga about the Roses Revolution. They want to stop obstetric violence by bringing attention to it. Obstetric violenc is the act of disregarding the authority and autonomy that women have over their own sexualities, their bodies, their babies and their birth experiences. It is also the act of disregarding the spontenaity, the positions the rythms and the times that labor requires in order to progress normally when there is no need for intervention. It also the act of disregarding the emotional needs of mother and baby throughout the whole labor process. Don't miss this interview
