Session 10: Respectful Maternity Care

This session discusses disrespect and abuse of women receiving maternity care, an important contributing factor to underutilization of skilled care at delivery. Volunteers often play a role in strengthening the links between communities, families, and individuals with health care service providers in facilities and can thus help to increase understanding and communication regarding respectful maternity care.
