In the conditions of the war, Ukrainians preparing for parenthood have to overcome new challenges. Now they need to make sure they have a plan B in case of labour outside a medical facility, make a list of contacts of professionals in case they need an online consultation, etc. Since February 24, medical facilities have also had to adjust to a new reality and implement changes related to organising a safe space for labour. In this conversation, we will discuss which experiences of managing a pregnancy and labour during the war should be taken into account during postwar rebuilding.


Watch the discussion on the docuspace.org website and on the Facebook page of the Docudays UA International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival.
