3. Résumé


«To provide maternity care of optimal quality, public health stakeholders need to be aware of the childbirth practices in different organizations and then insure that these conform to women’s and their families’ needs. The theoretical framework of this study may not be broad enough to allow analysis of all the organizational dimensions and their influences on the provision of optimal care, but at a theoretical and practical level it still has the potential to highlight some components of humanized birth care and the facilitating factors for or barriers to such care in highly specialized hospitals.» (p. 9)
