‘Risk & Birth: Social or Medical Model’ panel discussion paper presented at 4th Conference of the Canadian Society of Sociology of Health, Montreal, Canada, May 2014.

Authors: Van Teijlingen, E.

Conference: 4th Conference of the Canadian Society of Sociology of Health

Dates: 5-6 May 2014

Abstract:

Understanding the underlying sociological models of pregnancy and childbirth helps us to put aspects of comparative maternity care research into perspective. Being aware of the medical and social model of childbirth also helps us understand why some people seeing the world from a particular perspective cannot ‘see’ or comprehend solutions to a problem that are based on the opposing perspective. Whether you regard pregnancy is a normal event in a woman's life cycle or as a risky event that can only be defined as safe in retrospect says something how you see the world.
