ARANGO-URREA, Juan David; MOLINA-BERRIO, Diana Patricia; MEJIA-MERINO, Cristina María  and  ZAPATA, Lyda Faneyra. Health Care to Mothers during the Delivery in some Health Centers in the City of Medellín: An Event Framed under the Neoliberalism and the CommodiAcation of Life. Rev. Gerenc. Polit. Salud [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.35, pp.76-92. ISSN 1657-7027.

Objective: To understand the meanings that health care workers have about the influence of the health context and the labor conditions on the health care provided to mothers in their delivery process, in some health centers in the city of Medellín during 2015-2016. Methods: It was a qualitative study using the methodology proposed after Anselm Strauss and Julieth Corbin's Grounded theory (GT). Results and Conclusion: the relations between the health care workers and the pregnant women during the delivery process are framed under both a macro-context like the Colombian health system and a neoliberal perspective that commodifies the life. The shutdown of many maternity wards and some of the hard labor conditions have impacted the relations between the health care workers and the mothers during the delivery process.
