Report seeks to limit medical intervention at birth

  • Comment

The National Childbirth Trust has published guidance for maternity healthcare professionals on planning service developments that increase the opportunity for mothers to give birth without major medical procedures.

The NCT report “Normal birth as a measure of the quality of care”, sets out the case for using normal birth rates as a measure of good midwifery care.

It also looks at different components of care that have been shown to increase normal birth rates.
