Healthcare professionals' perspectives on traumatic childbirth - interpreting the data

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateResearchpeer-review


We would like to thank Cauldwell and Bewley (1) for their encouraging comments regarding our recent manuscript 'Blame and guilt - a mixed methods study of obstetricians' and midwives' experiences and existential considerations after involvement in traumatic childbirth' (2). The manuscript is the first publication from a large interdisciplinary study, and more data and analyses will follow. While we agree that it is an important finding that 87% agreed with 'Memories of what happened to the patient kept troubling me for a long time after the event', we do not share the authors' interpretation of the item to be representative of intrusive memories.
