The Active Birth Manifesto

The Active Birth Manifesto was completed by Janet for the Birth Rights Rally in London in 1982. This was a demonstration in North London, organised by the Active Birth Movement to support women’s right to freedom of movement and the use of upright positions in our maternity services.  The manifesto remains the definitive document on Active Birth and although Active Birth is now widely applied and is a well known generic term, its principles have yet to be fully implemented.
