This book is the first comprehensive international overview of maternity services. Drawing on concepts of risk and social citizenship, it explores the relationship between welfare regimes and health policy by comparing and contrasting provision for childbearing women.

Each substantive chapter focuses on a different country, presenting detailed contextual information on health care provision, maternity interventions and birth outcomes there. They discuss key issues such as birth rates and fertility patterns, the role of patient choice, attitudes to place of birth and maternity entitlements among others, and the countries covered represent diverse welfare regimes, including Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. An extended introduction and a conclusion draw the book together and place it in the context of the literature on comparative welfare regimes.

It is an important reference for students and academics interested in comparative social policy, health services research, and maternity services and policies.

She has undertaken research and published on domestic violence, the maternity needs of refugee and asylum seekers, gender-based violence, women's health, the Irish Emigrant Chaplaincy Scheme and evidence-based policy. On an international level she is a founding member of the European Network for the Promotion of Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights of Refugees and Asylum Seekers EnHera organisation sponsored by the European Refugee Fund.

From 2000 to 2001 she represented the National Women’s Council of Ireland on the Kinder Review of Maternity Services and from 2001 to 2011 on the North East Health Services Executive Maternity Services Task Force which led to the development of Maternity Led Units and Maternity Liaison Committees in Ireland for the first time.
