This presentation reports on research conducted in New Zealand exploring the practice of case-loading midwives. The practice of case-loading midwives within the obstetric hospital provides a focus, exposing the contested nature of maternity care and illustrating the way that midwives negotiate this contested terrain. Midwifery practice is described as “making space for childbirth”.
