Data Collection and Analysis: A data collection table was constructed with findings from 32 papers. A narrative synthesis was conducted with subsequent thematic analysis of included papers. Main Results: Four areas of decision-making were identified with six themes revealing enablers and barriers to shared decision-making in antenatal care. Conclusion: Implementation of shared decision-making requires continuity, time and personalisation of care.
