Thematic analysis of women's perspectives on the meaning of safety during hospital-based birth.
This study used an interdisciplinary team of five investigators to examine women’s birth experiences in the perspective of patient safety. Five investigators in the fields of nursing, medicine, product design, and journalism analyzed transcripts to see how women felt about their physical or emotional safety during birth, and to identify opportunities for improvement in care. Teams that were well-organized promoted feelings of safety as well as human connection.

The researchers identified factors that influence inductions from the perspective of women. They found that lack of informed decision making was cited as a barrier to optimal care; additional themes emerged from the preinduction and postinduction interviews.
