Natural-birth only unit6th February 2008
A specialist unit at a Scottish hospital which only allows mothers to give birth naturally has doubled the number of women who use it.
When it was set up at the Forth Park hospital in Kirkcaldy, Fife, in 1994, the unit - which is run by midwives and doctors - was used by 735 expectant mothers. In 2007, it took in 1,528 women. The Royal College of Midwives has given the team a special award for its work in promoting natural births.
