Citation'Not enough people to look after you': an exploration of women's experiences of childbirth in the Republic of Ireland. 2012, 28 (1):98-105 Midwifery
AbstractExcluding women's views from service evaluation renders an incomplete and somewhat distorted depiction of childbirth in Ireland. Although women appear to be satisfied with a live healthy baby, the process of 'getting there' has an emotional and psychological dimension that is important to the experience. Measuring the quality of maternity services must encompass recognition of psychological and emotional well-being alongside physical safety.
