Many anecdotal accounts are available. Many women and midwives wrote their stories in submissions to the Australian government's Maternity Services Review.
Two well known academics in the field of women's studies have asked that midwives and mothers who are willing to share their stories contact them. This is not, at this stage, funded research. The aim is to make up a collection of accounts that demonstrate issues of women's autonomy and rights in birthing - as both birthgivers and the women workers who care for them. These accounts will be useful in presentations to human rights advocates, and women's health networks.
