Full description:

We know what is said during labour matters for how women experience birth. However, most existing research is based on interviews some weeks after birth.We need research that provides details of actual talk about decisions during labour. This study will video (or audio record if women prefer) the labours of 50 low-risk, full-term women and write down in full what , their birth partners and health care professionals interact and make decisions during labour. Findings will inform health practices.
