1. Place of delivery: a review By Campbell R, MacFarlane A
Br J Obstet Gynaecol 1986 Jul;93(7):675-83
‘The available evidence does not support claims that, for the baby, the iatrogenic risks of obstetric intervention outweigh the possible benefits. At the same time, there is no evidence to support the claim that the shift to hospital delivery is responsible for the decline in perinatal mortality in England and Wales nor the claim that the safest policy is for all women to be delivered in hospital.’
