Home births in the UK, 1955-2006
Nove, Andrea, Berrington, Ann and Matthews, Zoe (2008) Home births in the UK, 1955-2006. Population Trends, 133, Autumn Issue, 20-27. (PMID:18847065).
This article presents data on trends in the percentage of maternities taking place at home in the UK. As well as the national trend, the article examines how home maternity levels vary according to mother’s age, number of previous live births within marriage, country of birth, region, local authority and NHS Trust. Examination of trends and variations in home maternity levels provides a context for debates regarding factors that may influence where women give birth.
