dc.description.abstract The study aims at exploring and describing the expectations that pregnant women have of an antenatal care clinic service and the formulation of guidelines for the implementation of an effective antenatal care service by the midwife practitioner. In-depth interviews were conducted with a sample of eighteen pregnant women in this study. Methods of data analysis according to Tesch (1990) were applied. Guba and Lincoln's method of ensuring trustworthiness was adopted. Literature control was undertaken to compare the findings of this study with those of other previous studies. Women displayed several common expectations that led to the saturation of data. The conclusions that were reached led to the notation of limitations, recommendations for nursing practice, education, research and the formulation of guidelines for the midwife practitioner for the implementation of effective antenatal care, based on the identified expectations. en_US
