Abstract:
In the current study, the effective content of routine care during pregnancy was investigated from women's points of view in three European countries: the Netherlands; Scotland and Switzerland. The participants were 32 women who were either pregnant at different stages of uncomplicated pregnancies or mothers within a year after giving birth. One-to-one semi-structured interviews were used to explore their views, while related documentary material in each of the countries was collected in order to increase understanding of women's experiences of care during pregnancy. Through the grounded theory approach of Strauss & Corbin (1998), using language units to assess meaning, the complexity and magnitude of the research area was captured. Within each of the units, grounded theory led sampling, data collection and analysis.
