Small UK study into reasons for choosing freebirth.

Just a small study and the findings - negative experiences, loss of faith in maternity services, desire to avoid interference and feel safe, the disconnect between midwifery philosophy and the actual experience of care, as well as a positive choice of freebirth - come as no surprise.  Anyone who looks at UK maternity care and thinks it is ok and offering choice, continuity, control or even care on anything other than an individual, occasional or serendipitous level is deluded.
