The aim is to provide a safe, but more home-like environment for birth, outside of the hospital/doctor interventionist model. This book discusses the issues surrounding birth centres in England, the Edgware Birth Centre as a well-researched case study, and birth centres across the world. This is the first comprehensive book on the subject.
