Royal College of Midwives to end campaign to promote 'normal births'

Women will no longer be told that they should have babies without medical intervention

Mums will not be told they should give birth without medical intervention, the Royal College of Midwives has said in an overhaul of "misleading" professional guidance.

But they will no longer be told they should have babies without this intervention. She denied that the policy had compromised safety.

But she conceded that it had "created the wrong idea" and would be ended.

She told the paper: "There was a danger that if you just talk about normal births, and particularly if you call it a campaign, it kind of sounds as if you're only interested in women who have a vaginal birth without intervention".

Mariners fall to Angels
With one down in the ninth, Trout drew a walk from James Pazos , and Albert Pujols followed with a line drive single to center. It bounced off his glove and skidded into the outfield, allowing Trout to score to give the Angels a 6-5 lead.

The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) has been running a continuous campaign since 2005 to encourage expectant mothers to give birth without medical interventions such as; epidurals, inductions and caesareans.

The initiative also came under scrutiny following the inquiry into the deaths of 11 babies and one mother at the Morecambe Bay trust, which found midwives" desire for "normal births' had contributed to unsafe deliveries.

MIDWIVES have dropped their 12-year campaign for "normal births", saying that it made women feel like failures. The assumption, driven in part by advice from midwives, has been that a natural birth is somehow superior. Doctors have welcomed the change in language.
