Background: Midwifery led care (MLC) is a model of care in which perinatal care is provided to women throughout different phases of childbirth by a midwife.
Objective: This paper aims to provide a literature review on MLC.
Methods: A variety of databases and reports were considered to do the literature review on MLC. The search was limited from 1991 to 2011 by using keywords. A total of 50 articles were critically appraised for this review.
Findings: The main theme that emerged was women ’s satisfaction with MLC. Satisfaction was integrated with midwife ’s presence throughout childbirth, experience to enhance normality in childbirth, cost-effectiveness of MLC, and facilitation of women ’s choice and control during labor.
Conclusion: The review concludes that MLC is women-friendly as it considers and respects women’s needs holistically during childbirth.
