Every contraction needs to be labored through to arrive at the birth of a form of midwifery care in which all pregnant people feel free, safe, and emotionally and physically supported. Contractions’ aim is to start an international dialogue with midwives globally, to recognize our issues as shared issues, and to learn from each other’s visions, critiques, and practices. If you want to share your own political contraction that you’re currently laboring through, or you want to subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates, please send an email to hetvroedegeluid@gmail.com.
