Informed choice in maternity care is government policy and is therefore an important issue in the education of midwives and obstetricians. This book brings together key research in the area and provides a forum for the concerns of all involved. Contributors are drawn from a wide range of perspectives, including service users, lay support groups, midwives, social scientists, obstetricians, nursing and law. Informed Choice in Maternity Care is timely, topical and covers a number of current debates.
