President János Áder Pardons Homebirth Midwife Ágnes Geréb
The freedom of a country can be measured by the freedom of birth
Dr Ágnes Geréb is a midwife and has supported women in giving birth at home. She became an advocate for home birth nationally and was targeted as a result of her work helping women access their rights to home birth. Those who provide home-birth services are criminalised in Hungary, despite the European Court for Human Rights asserting the rights of women to give birth at home in 2010.
