    Abstract

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS ARTICLE is
    to share some of our insights and thoughts
    about midwife-led care (MLC) which have
    arisen whilst engaged in an action research
    project recently.
    As a result of a new hospital being built
    locally where all current in-patient services
    would be centralised, many concerns were
    expressed over the future of the midwife-led
    unit (Deery et ai, 1999). This was accommodated
    in separate facilities to the obstetric-
    led unit and enjoyed a good reputation
    and increasing use by local women and midwives.
    Part of the reconfiguration of services
    locally meant that this unit would,
    from 200 1, share the same geographical
    location with the obstetric-led unit.
