To support the National Maternity Review an evidence review was commissioned focusing specifically on the evidence relating to: safety of place of birth including an extension of the Birthplace in England cohort study analysis; the impact of consultant resident cover on labour ward; the effect of ‘risk tiering’ of care provision as used in selected European countries; and women’s birth place preferences and experiences of choosing their intended place of birth.
