We seek to promote best-practice care for all women who may experience difficulties in their pregnancies, and wish to further expand the practice of treating illness during pregnancy to allow for a healthy and happy gestational period for both mother and baby.
Promoting excellence in maternal healthcare
Achieving an excellent record in caring for mothers and babies, and hope that our endeavours can assist medical practitioners in the pursuit of excellence in maternal healthcare.
DUBLIN DECLARATION ON MATERNAL HEALTHCARE
“As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynaecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child – is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman.
We uphold that there is a fundamental difference between abortion, and necessary medical treatments that are carried out to save the life of the mother, even if such treatment results in the loss of life of her unborn child.
We confirm that the prohibition of abortion does not affect, in any way, the availability of optimal care to pregnant women.”
