MiMo - a study of a midwifery model of woman-centred care during childbirth

Woman-centred care is a main goal for theory and practice in childbirth. Theoretical models of midwifery care has been developed in different countries and maternity care settings. Even if there are similarities with the models by focusing on the woman´s perceptive and the relationship with health professionals, differences exists related to cultural differences and professional roles. Therefore, based on previous research, a theoretical midwifery model of woman centred care in the Nordic context (MiMo) has been developed.
