Introduction : Freebirth is defined as la purposeful choice by women to experience labour and birth without a professional attendant despite there being maternity services available' (NCT 2011). It is viewed as a controversial exercise of maternal autonomy which has the potential to increase the chance of morbidity and mortality (McKenzie et al 2020).
Aim: To explore the reasons women choose to freebirth and the consequences and implications for UK midwifery practice.
Methods: A broad range of databases were searched to find relevant literature, with a focus on qualitative papers. Relevant literature was then synthesised to identify key themes.
Findings: Four key studies were identified that satisfied inclusion criteria and three themes arose: women's ideologies around birth; interactions with midwives and navigating the maternity system.
Conclusion : This synthesis of lived experience evidence suggests women are not always receiving the standard midwifery social model of care and greater support for women who have experienced trauma is required. Midwives need to acknowledge women's alternative beliefs about birth and be supported to move away from risk and fear-based practice.
