Ever notice how difficult it can be to build and maintain solidarity in your birth community?
This might be a symptom of horizontal violence–a documented phenomenon in nursing and midwifery of bullying and infighting. On an individual level, it can mean that it’s hard to find supportive and trustworthy peers; on a group level, it can keep everyone powerless.
In this eye-opening video, Cristen describes horizontal violence and discusses how it applies to the birth world.
