Summary of "Client-centred maternity care from women's perspectives: Need for responsiveness."

Client- or woman-centred care has become a major focus in improving Western maternity care systems. In measures to increase client-centredness, the perspectives of maternity care professionals and policymakers often predominate. However, to put women at the centre of maternity care, insights into their perspectives are important. Therefore, the aim of this study is to analyze the perspectives of women on maternity care and to provide recommendations on how to achieve client-centred care.
