Abstract [en]

Background: A woman has the right to give birth in the place of her choice, in privacy and with the company of a trusted supporter. The aim of this study was to define the concept "woman’s choice during labor and birthʺ in the Bangladesh context. Methods: The study design was concept analysis with data consisting of written text from literature and structured interviews. The concept analysis comprises three phases. Phase was 1) a theoretical phase, followed by 2) a field study phase, and finally 3) a synthesis phase with the field study phase in light of the theoretical phase. The setting was labor wards, nursing institutes and nursing college (post basic) at three different places in Bangladesh. Four midwifery students, one clinical midwife and four Midwifery teachers participated in this study. The interviews were recorded with the permission of the respondents. A concept analysis was undertaken according to the hybrid model which consists of the theoretical, fieldwork and analytical phases. After a literature review the concept was empirically elucidated in the fieldwork phase. Results: The tentative criteria attributes of woman’s choice during labour and birth in the Bangladeshi context are described: Woman choice during labour and birth means labour process, type of delivery, neonatal wellbeing, companionship at birth. Conclusion: Women’s choice in labour and birth is worldwide to make decisions within boundaries and particularly women’s choices are limited in Bangladesh. Professionally and personally the woman’s choices are limited by lack of options in the caring environment influenced by socio-cultural factors, socio-economic standards and education level. Clinical implications: Empirical findings from the theoretical concept analysis confirm the concept’s relevance in the midwifery context.
