Description:
The impetus for this study was due to concerns expressed by the Dublin maternity hospitals about their ability to meet demands made by the increasing number of births among residents of their geographical catchment area and those women coming from areas with their own maternity services. It was appropriate to concentrate on the process of choosing maternity services of those mothers who opted for Dublin services, initially but in order to provide a more complete picture the process for those mothers who opted to avail of local maternity services – 90% of births to residents of the South Eastern Health Board – also needed to be included. The views and experiences of two groups - those who choose not to use a service and those who use a service – are both of importance when the focus is on improvements.
