Abstract

Understanding the underlying sociological models of pregnancy and childbirth helps us to put aspects of comparative maternity care research into perspective. Being aware of the medical and social model of childbirth also helps us understand why some people seeing the world from a particular perspective cannot ‘see’ or comprehend solutions to a problem that are based on the opposing perspective. Whether you regard pregnancy is a normal event in a woman's life cycle or as a risky event that can only be defined as safe in retrospect says something how you see the world.
