G. Chamberlain, A. Wraight
CRC Press, Mar 15, 1997 - Medical - 310 pages
This is the report of the 1994 confidential enquiry by the National Birthday Trust Fund (U.K.), also known as the 1994 Home Births Study, conducted by Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain, Midwife Ann Wraight, and Doctor Patricia Crowley. It is an informative and comprehensive study of births intended to take place at home, shows that planned birth at home is a safe option, that the women who are being selected for home births are appropriate, and that midwives manage home births well and competently. The book contains twelve chapters, a glossary, and appendices of the questionnaires used in the study. Though published primarily for a U.K. readership, its data is of interest to medical researchers and policy-makers everywhere.
