Brief description There is concern about the rising levels of caesarean section in Australia and some evidence that women may benefit from caseload midwifery care. This randomised control trial will determine whether caseload midwifery care can reduce interventions and is as safe as usual hospital maternity care. A Cochrane systematic review of midwifery led care versus routine care was designed to answer these questions.This will be the first randomised controlled trial to contribute to this review
