Being a homebirth midwife in the Nordic countries – a phenomenological study
Conclusion The experience of being a homebirth midwife in the Nordic countries includes making an adaption to a lifestyle that is considered the basis for a satisfactory and rewarding way of working. A sense of fulfillment is achieved through experiencing the possibility to work according to one's own ideals concerning the art of midwifery. The beliefs about a woman's ability to give birth and understanding the importance of a positive birth for both the mother and the newborn baby are essential.

Clinical experience and perception of abortion: A cross-sectional survey of gynecologists in Japan
This study describes aspects of early induced abortion from the experience and perspectives of a sample of gynecologists in Japan. The survey questionnaire data were collected from 343 gynecologists from September to October 2010. Approximately 83% of participants preferred using only dilation and curettage (D&C), and 10.4% used electric vacuum aspiration (EVA). The cost of surgical abortion was not covered by insurance. Most gynecologists used intravenous pain management during abortion. Approximately 50% of the gynecologists were opposed to introducing medical abortion in Japan.

“Nature makes you blind to the risks”: An exploration of womens' views surrounding decisions on the timing of childbearing in contemporary society
Conclusion We conclude that social reality dominates womens' reproductive decisions. Whilst the biological reality is that fertility reduces and medical complications increase with maternal age, social discourses deter women from acknowledging this. Medical risks associated with advanced maternal age are undermined by the notion that women can choose when to start a family. (Source: Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare)

The characteristics of women who birth at home, in a birth centre or in a hospital labour ward: A study of a nationally-representative sample of 1835 pregnant women

The confluence of these factors for individual women can impact on the birth settings available to women and the corresponding choices they make. A clear understanding of these factors is important to ensure women access the most appropriate birth environment to achieve the best maternal and foetal health outcomes.

Midwives' experiences of labour care in midwifery units. A qualitative interview study in a Norwegian setting
Conclusions Starting to work in an AMU/FMU can be a distressing period for a midwife. First, it may require de-learning the medical approach to birth, and, second, it may entail a revitalisation (and re-learning) of birth care that promotes physiological birth. Midwifery, particularly in FMUs, requires an especially careful assessment of the labouring process, the ability to be foresighted, and capability in emergencies. The autonomy of midwives may be constrained also in AMUs/FMUs. However, working in these settings is also viewed as experiencing “the art of midwifery” and enables revitalisation of the midwife...

Conclusion Overall planned home birth was not discussed with much intensity or frequency, but in general the discussion was shaped by a positive attitude. There was a distinction in the public media discourse among midwives and physicians or obstetricians who do not argue against planned home birth but who nevertheless speak with caution. The pregnant women who chose home birth found their own home to be safe and similar views were identified among women and midwives. (Source: Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare)

Continuity of a midwife caregiver was still important and women seem more willing to follow the recommended number of antenatal visits.

Such awareness is necessary when promoting health and reducing the unnecessary suffering and victimization of women, their children, and their families. It is a matter of patient safety and equity.
