Birth by Design: Pregnancy, Midwifery Care and Midwifery in North America and Europe
Authors: DeVries, R., Benoit, C., van Teijlingen, E. and Wrede, S.
Place of Publication: New YorkAbstract:
This collection brings together the leading research in maternity care from the United States, Canada and Europe to discuss systems of care for pregnancy and childbirth. The essays focus on the practical side of "good" social science and "feminist-friendly" research. The text not only looks at maternity, but also the act of childbirth, with the goal of providing not just comparative perspectives of care, but also to integrate the differences in care within each essay for a truly international understanding of maternity care.
