This study is interested in the findings of interviews with women, services and individuals who experienced intensive social work support in their community of Counties Manukau, Auckland, New Zealand, while receiving antenatal care. We asked women who participated in this study about their experiences, feelings and understanding of their antenatal and postnatal care. The name of the model used in this study is Te Waiora, and focuses on the social and health wellbeing of pregnant women in a holistic and intensive way.
The study captured similarities and differences in the care pregnant women experienced, and asked them to compare them to other pregnancies. The study wanted to know if there were any social and health differences for the women, and what they were.
