Where women choose to birth their babies

Here is a video recording of one of the sessions held at the 2008 ICM conference that has just been held in Glasgow.

The three speakers deal with the issue of how women choose where to have their babies; hospital, home or birthing centre.

Place of delivery & choice: A qualitative study of rural maternity care in Scotland. Edwin van Teijlingen & Emma Pitchford.

Randomisation for place of delivery is not possible in the Netherlands. Marijke Hendrix

Decision criteria of women, whether to give birth in a midwife-managed delivery unit or a consultant-led unit in northern Germany. Oda von Rahden & Petra Kolip.
