Abstract

Women with ‘low risk’ pregnancies are largely encouraged through research and national policy to delivery in midwifery led units or at home, however, it appears that the majority continue to attend consultant led hospital settings. Much research exists to support midwives in facilitating informed choice but it has been identified that midwives are often influenced by internal and external factors when providing this and that time constraints hinder this process. Supervisors of midwives (SoM) provided a complex care planning service to women. However, with Supervision of Midwives removed from statute and the new Advocating for Education and Quality Improvement (A-EQUIP) model not yet operational a ‘gap’ area has been identified as a potential concern. This ‘gap’ is complex care planning with women, therefore, an alternative approach to SoM providing complex care planning is The Birth Choice Clinic.
