Home Birth A Family Affair is based on a qualitative research project and PhD thesis. It is primarily about home birth, the factors that shaped women's decision making and their expreriences about giving birth in a familiar environment. it also examines the medical and social framing of the process and much of the study is concerned with boundaries; conceptual, ideological and geographical with all three emerging as central to women's experience. The study examines how the environment of the home, as a private space, links with the subjective feelings of security and the delicate physiological changes taking place in the women's body.

The research site is a small town in the East Riding of Yorkshire with a relatively high number of women giving birth at home. It was therefore important to undertake this study whilst the opportunity presented itself. Although the research was largely about home birth, the womens frank reflections of their birthing experiences in hospital provides important insights for those working within this environment.
