Birth Utilising Midwifery Practice (BUMP): A randomised controlled trial
This trial is designed to determine whether midwifery continuity of care for women with a previous caesarean section increases the proportion of women who attempt vaginal birth in their current pregnancy. The trial is being undertaken at Gosford Hospital (NSW) with a second site commenced in late 2014 (Gold Coast Hospital, Queensland). The study is led by Caroline Homer at UTS with other chief investigators including Prof Maralyn Foureur (UTS); Prof Deborah Davis (UoC); Prof Jon Adams (UTS), Dr Alison Porteous (Gosford Hospital). Funding was through a NHMRC Project Grant (2012-2015).
