Midwives need support to involve women in decision-making during labour

Year of publication
Midwives can find it challenging to involve women fully in decision-making during labour, a study found. They may struggle to balance women’s choices with their own concerns about following standard practice. However, most women were satisfied with how decision-making took place, and with the care they received. An exception was when they had to ask multiple times for strong pain relief (such as opiates).
