Abstract:

Childbirth educators who express frustration with the perceived lack of power in their practice may be suffering from moral distress. Although the impact of moral distress has not been thoroughly explored among health-care professionals, the topic is emerging as an important ethical concept. In this article, the concept of moral distress is explored, and suggestions are made for moving from moral distress to moral action.
