Hungarian women wishing to birth naturally face an uphill battle. The hospital system is highly interventionist; including routine inductions and episiotomies. The cost to women for obstetric care is significant, up to a month’s wages.

Stories like this one give us a chance to reflect on what we have, and what we stand to lose if it is not protected.
