This research focuses on decision sharing - how and when patient-doctor decision sharing affects emotional outcomes in pregnancy and childbirth decisions. Data from Russia and the U.S. show that patient-made or shared decisions yield better emotional outcomes than decisions made by doctors alone. Findings were consistent for Russian and U.S. women.
