dc.descriptionInternationally, maternity care policy in developed countries has increasingly expanded from its original strong focus on safety for mother and baby to include issues of maternal choice and satisfaction. In particular, the complex concept of ‘informed choice’ for women is now to the fore. Safety in maternity care is an ambiguous concept and professional caregivers have to assess constantly what comprises either a ‘risk’ or a risk management/ avoidance strategy. Care during pregnancy and childbirth may be seen as a social process that affects both mother and baby in physical and psychological ways. As a result of falling fertility, women have fewer experiences of childbirth to assist them in understanding their care in labour and birth. Women may be choosing frequent use of epidural analgesia or planned caesarean section as ways to ‘control’ an interventionist birth process in under-resourced maternity units.1en_GB
