Soulful Childbirth - upgrading communication skills on existential matters in maternity services
In relation to childbirth and in maternity care services, aspects of existential and spiritual dimensions of life and care are only briefly explored. This contrasts other parts of health services, for example related to sickness and death, where research in several years have focused on also spiritual dimensions of life and care. The aim of this study is, for the first time in the Nordic countries, to develop, evaluate and implement continuing education focusing on existential ncoursemmus nication as part of an important professional development for midwives, obstetricians.
