Grounded theory was employed to explore the personal, social and structural factors that influence midwives behaviour and attitudes towards the use of complementary and alternative medicine. Twenty-five midwives who were employed in metropolitan hospitals situated in Victoria, Australia, participated in the study. Data was collected from semi structured interviews and non participant observation of a subgroup, over an 18-month period in 2010-2011.
