Caring for lesbian couples

Norwegian researchers have stated that midwives 'must consider' needs of lesbian couples.

Based on research which interviewed 11 midwives' experience of caring for lesbian couples, they suggested that more studies are needed to cope with the 'uncertain caring situations' and that there was a need to 'assess a co-mother's role and needs during pregnancy'.
