Untangling the Maternity Crisis, edited by Nadine Edwards, Rosemary Mander, Jo Murphy-Lawless, © 2018 – Routledge:

"Designed to create awareness about the professional and political realities which enmesh maternity care, this inspiring volume features an in-depth and research-oriented analysis of the challenges faced by contemporary maternity services. Recognising the frequently hostile environment in which midwives practise, the contributors go on to explore its impact on women and families, as well as on midwives themselves. They then look at woman-centred and community-based ways of contributing to a much better birthing experience for all. "

The Elephant Collective includes individuals and groups who have been affected by, or have concerns over maternal deaths in Ireland.
