The aim of the study is to explore the experiences of Slovenian midwives in relation to physiological birth. The study objectives are to obtain midwives' understanding and views related to physiological birth; to explore midwives' attitudes towards the concept of physiological birth; to explore their experiences of the factors that facilitate or inhibit physiological birth in practice. Participants' lived experiences will be captured with the use of phenomenological approach. It is intended to undertake semi-structured, face-to-face interviews with midwives working in Slovenia and analyse the data with interpretive hermeneutic phenomenological approach.
I graduated from midwifery programme at the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and continued with the postgraduate study of midwifery at the University of Nottingham. Currently I am employed by the University of Ljubljana, working as a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Health Sciences, Department of Midwifery. So far, I have been involved in several national as well as international projects. Furthermore, I support student midwives on the undergraduate level and coordinate international students through the Erasmus plus program. As a midwife I am striving towards supporting women in their individual decisions and I am very passionate for researching midwifery-related topics.
