Cover Story (view full-size image): Obstetric violence is a concept that is being debated. Despite this, many women around the world report experiencing it. This study provides evidence of obstetric violence in Spain. The results suggest that Spain has a problem with obstetric violence. It is essential to reflect on obstetric practices because it seems that some women are being absorbed by the technical-scientific authority of health personnel and the patriarchal authority of structural violence. It is necessary to invest effort in improving some of the indicators related to maternal and child health. It is important to consider each of the aspects of maternal care as part of the sexual and reproductive life of women, and neither the comprehensive care received in the health system nor the legislation that should exist to protect women from obstetric violence can be dissociated.
