In addition, many have never had the opportunity to debrief their own births or the births of the women they have cared for, making it potentially difficult for them to allow women attending classes the freedom to make the choices that are right for them. Why have the fruits of many years of research into adult education and how humans learn, had, by and large, so little impact on childbirth education? Why is it that childbirth education has not manifested the dynamism of other adult learning packages, continuing to teach women to conform to a system of birth that has proved inflexible to the individuality of women and the unpredictability of labour?

In turn, the reality created by sharing the stories generates meaning. For example, stories of a woman who suffered a catastrophic haemorrhage at home birth may influence a whole team of caregivers against home-birth choices for women. These caregivers then tell the story to the women they come across, who then tell it to their friends, thus creating a local ‘reality’ that home birth is unsafe. This narrative reality can become a clinical reality if a lack of home-birth experience means that clinicians are not sure how to conduct such births safely.
