Midwife-led continuity of care models demonstrate a number of benefits to women with no adverse effects. These benefits include a reduction in childbirth interventions, an increase in spontaneous vaginal births for women of low and increased risk (Begley et al., 2011, Hartz et al., 2013, Sandall et al., 2015) and a reduction in rates of caesarean sections in women of low risk (McLachlan et al., 2012). This model of care also demonstrates increased satisfaction for women when compared to other models of maternity care (Sandall et al., 2015).
