Within maternity care midwives and consultantobstetricians are frequently required to collaboratetogether in an attempt to provide optimal care forwomen and their babies. In this way they are engagingin interprofessional collaboration, a much debatedand increasingly popular policy agenda within healthcare. However, despite the growing support forinterprofessional collaboration there is a limitedunderstanding of how patient experiences are influenced by interprofessional working. This book will shed light on this issue using insights gained from midwifery clients. The stories of the women suggest that interprofessional consultation is complex with instances of subjugation and resistance occurring simultaneously as differing professional ideologies collide. The experience of midwifery clients during interprofessional consultation will be relevant for all those involved in maternity care, and for academics and professionals who are considering ways in which policy and practice can strengthen interprofessional working.
