Challenging Choices in Pregnancy and Childbirth: Results from a Meta-Ethnographic Review of the Literature

Madeley, Anna-Marie (2022). Challenging Choices in Pregnancy and Childbirth: Results from a Meta-Ethnographic Review of the Literature. In: Royal College of Midwives Education and Research Conference 2022, 23-24 Mar 2022, Coventry.

Abstract

Informed choice is the cornerstone of contemporary maternity care within the UK and contributes to safe physical and psychological maternity care. Some women decline all or part of their maternity care and make choices and decisions considered ‘non-normative’. The results of this review demonstrate a gap in existing knowledge which supports the need for future research. A wider approach is needed to understanding how, why and what the underlying social and other processes underpinning there are.
