Abstract: As a result of medical advances and technological developments, childbirth in Europe has been transformed from a physiological process usually taking place in the home, to a pathological, clinical event. This publication is concerned with what constitutes a normal birth in contemporary society, and current cultural influences on childbirth practices. What are the procedures and outcomes, opinions and preferences related to childbirth in different societies, and particularly Portugal? What is the interface between proponents of different approaches to childbirth? And what developments can we expect to see in the immediate future? These issues were discussed by specialists from diverse backgrounds at an international seminar in Lisbon. This e-book includes a general and thematic introduction, a literal transcription of the seminar proceedings and discussions, academic and practical references and a comprehensive bibliography. Each section is presented in both English and Portuguese.
