For women, the birth of a child can be associated with the renewal of life and represent one of the most intense and significant events in human existence. Therefore, childbirth care should be centered on women’s needs, considering their rights and their active participation in the parturition process. In addition, the risk aspects peculiar to each pregnant woman must be highlighted and increased in care in order to preserve the quality of care and comprehensiveness [1]. However, in Brazil and many other countries, these rights, which are preconditions for health and citizenship, have been gradually violated.
