Statement on Ukraine
Our COST Action 18211 members are deeply concerned and follow with sadness the escalation of the events taking place in Ukraine. As with all wars, this war touches us deeply, and we particularly think of all the families caught up in this conflict. We know that war causes trauma that may have a lasting and devastating impact not only on families now, but also for future generations to come. In these days, parents are facing unprecedented challenges and difficulties giving birth and parenting children in the context of war. We call upon all those who may be in a position to assist and take action to support parents and children whilst offering our expertise in these uncertain times.

Birth trauma affects mothers, fathers and children. The impact of a negative or traumatic birth experience can last for years and even a lifetime.
The main goal of COST Action DEVOTION CA18211 is to connect a pan-European multidisciplinary network of birth trauma researchers. By connecting researchers across the world, CA18211 aims to accelerate what can be learned and shared amongst researchers.
Ultimately, CA18211 is working towards an ideal universal standard of care to prevent and minimise birth trauma and optimise birth experiences.
Who We Work With
CA18211 is a multidisciplinary network of Researchers dedicated to understanding and reducing traumatic birth experiences
