Abstract

to increase understanding of the culture and the organisation
of midwife-led care services in northern ireland, in particular
to gain a deeper insight into the guidelines utilised for the admission and/or transfer of women accessing the services. There has been a steady increase in the provision of midwife-led units (mlu) in northern ireland since the first unit opened in 2001;
this is strongly supported by government policy (dhssps,
2012). Currently there are seven midwife-led units, three freestanding and four alongside maternity care units.
