Midwifery presence in United States medical centers and labor care and birth outcomes among low ‐risk nulliparous women: A Consortium on Safe Labor study
ConclusionsThe care processes and birth outcomes at interprofessional and noninterprofessional medical centers differed significantly. Nulliparous women receiving care at interprofessional centers were less likely to experience induction, oxytocin augmentation, and cesarean than women at noninterprofessional centers. Labor care and birth outcome differences between interprofessional and noninterprofessional centers may be the result of the presence of midwives and interprofessional collaboration, organizational culture, or both.

Influence of midwifery presence in United States centers on labor care and outcomes of low ‐risk parous women: A Consortium on Safe Labor study
ConclusionsParous women have significantly higher rates of vaginal birth, including vaginal birth after cesarean, and lower likelihood of labor induction when cared for in centers with midwives. Our findings are consistent with smaller analyses of midwifery practice and support integrated, team ‐based models of perinatal care to improve maternal outcomes. (Source: Birth)

Measuring labor and delivery unit culture and clinicians ’ attitudes toward birth: Revision and validation of the Labor Culture Survey
ConclusionsThe revised LCS is a valid and reliable tool to measure constructs shown to be associated with cesarean rates. These findings support prior research that has shown that hospital culture is measurable, and that clinician attitudes are predictive of clinician behaviors. Unique to our survey is the construct of labor and delivery unit microculture. (Source: Birth)
