While healthcare policy relating to the need for service improvement and reconfiguration of service delivery is well documented, there remains a paucity of empirical knowledge, with little explanatory theory, from the perspectives of women, about ways women experience the postnatal period. This paper explores issues arising when enabling women’s voices to be heard in the discourse about childbirth and postnatal care through engagment with their stories. Research questions include: What are the phenomenological experiences surrounding women’s narratives following childbirth? What are women’s views about what they consider they require help for and are women able to express their needs in ways healthcare professionals (HCPs) understand?
