Women 'should be given choice' where they give birth

We welcome this valuable study which shows how we can provide safe and cost effective maternity services. As we modernise the NHS we have made it a priority to offer women choices in where they give birth. We want women to be able to talk through their birth plan with their midwife, to find the best option for them.
