This collection of essays contains leading research in maternity care from Europe, the United States and Canada to discuss systems of care for pregnancy and childbirth. Birth By Design focuses on the practical side of 'good' social science and 'feminist friendly' research. This is a ground-breaking work that looks not only at maternity, but also the act of childbirth.
