Birthplace in England - new evidence


13 / 06 / 2012

This digest highlights new evidence from recently published research on maternity services across England.

It provides authoritative findings from the Birthplace Research Programme, commissioned in 2007 to address key gaps in the evidence, including a national prospective cohort study of low-risk women giving birth in different settings. The Birthplace cohort study is the largest study of its kind in the world, designed to inform those who plan, commission and deliver maternity services. The first four studies were completed in November 2011 and a further two are due to complete during 2012.
