The dominant childbirth story: are women satisfied with their childbirth experience?

The article addresses the quality of the medical services provided to women as part of perinatal care. It is based on data gathered from in-depth interviews, surveys, and statistical data on perinatal results for the 2002-2011 period. It highlights certain aspects of medicalised childbirth, i.e. the routine performance of certain medical interventions during delivery, inappropriate treatment by the medical staff, inadequate organisation of the perinatal health system, the views of the midwifery and gynaecology disciplines on continuous midwife care in line with the principle "one woman - one midwife" and home childbirth.
