Abstract

How can we change childbirth? This was a question that preoccupied me after my first daughter was born — a planned home birth that ended in a post-dates induction and forceps delivery. I was traumatised, but barely felt able to describe this as ‘disappointment’, so strong is the cultural message that ‘all that matters is a healthy baby’.
