    Abstract

    It IOK..l Rt"'I'\.ll •• in
    midwifery is widely recognised with the
    move towards a profession that is evidence
    based. (Sandall, 1998). The foundations for
    policies, procedures and guidelines have
    mainly arisen from quantitative research,
    especially in the form of randomised controlled
    trials (RCTs) (NHS, 1996). The
    HS Executive in 1996 stated that only
    recommendations based on RCTs should
    be used in contract setting (NHS, 1996).
