My research focuses on obstetric violence in general, and specifically in maternity wards in Israel. My previous work examined the connection between traumatic childbirth, motherhood and shame (Cohen Shabot & Korem, Hypatia 2018). I am a childbirth rights activist, a former publicist, and a PhD student in the University of Haifa (Israel) in the Gender and Women’s Studies program.

My research focuses in the field of bioethics from different aspects and perspectives. My current work examines women’s choice during the pregnancy period and childbirth
