This project aims to deepen our knowledge of the different forms of vulnerability, violence and loss of rights which pregnant women experience in the framework of the pandemic. With this objective in mind, we attempt to develop an educational program which helps foster a better capacitation for midwives and other healthcare professionals so as to offer these women respectuous attention in this new scene.
