RCM condemns imprisonment of midwife

  • Comment

The Royal College of Midwives has “strongly condemned” the imprisonment of Hungarian midwife Agnes Gereb for promoting home births.

RCM general secretary Professor Cathy Warwick said: “We would like to call both for the release of Dr Gereb and for the introduction of legislation in Hungary which would allow midwives to perform out-of-hospital births.

“Agnes Gereb is a woman who has been attempting to work in the interests of women. Her treatment at the hands of the authorities is disproportionate and inhumane.”
