Title:
The burden of shame and stigma
Authors:
Steen, Mary; Jones, Alun
Abstract:
It is not only women who experience shame and stigma because of their circumstances, it can affect midwives too. Shame and stigma can have a significant impact on both parents and midwife. Expectant parents who are experiencing difficulties with childbirth may become self absorbed. Critical ruminations are likely to ensue and this can lead to these parents failing to care for themselves appropriately. Meanwhile, midwives’ professional practice may also become compromised because of shameful ruminations.
