Abstract

Within the UK currently there is an expectation that health carers will provide women-centred, holistic care to pregnant women and their families (NMC 2009). It could be argued that, as there is limited understanding of spiritual care related to pregnancy and the unborn child that it is unlikely that spiritual needs are being met within a holistic care package. The purpose of this discussion will be to consider what these needs may be and how midwives and other care professionals could provide spiritual care. In addition reference will be made to provision of pregnancy care in a Christian church setting.
