Abstract

This paper is a shortened version of a meta-synthesis published in Social Science and Medicine in 2009 on pregnant women’s decision-making processes with regard to antenatal screening for Down’s syndrome. It includes a brief introduction to metasynthesis as a methodology and thenfocuses mainly on the emergent findings, based on nine primary qualitative research studies. Readers who are interested in the methodology will find further details in the full paper. In someparts, language has been changed from the original for the NCT audience of specialist workers and parent advocates.
