    Sheila Shribman, National Clinical Director for Children,
    Young People and Maternity Services, has recently presented
    the current widespread reconfiguration of maternity
    services as an opportunity to improve choice for
    women (Shribman, 2007). Important parts of this strategy
    are midwife-led units, whether free-standing birth centres
    or ‘alongside’ midwife-led units located on the same
    premises as consultant-led maternity units. Whilst the
    rational for such units is partially to satisfy the demands of
    Health Overview and Scrutiny Committees, they also fulfil
    important roles in terms of effectiveness and efficacy.
