'Waiting on Birth'

Management of Time and Place in a Birth Centre

This chapter discusses temporality in relation to birth-centre care and forms part of the findings of an ethnography of a free-standing birth centre (FSBC) in the United Kingdom. The background to the study was the increasing interest in birth centres as a way of reducing interventions in childbirth. Intervention rates are escalating across the Western world with some U.K. studies showing that only a small minority of women experiencing their first birth do so without recourse to common medical interventions like syntocinon to speed up labour or operative delivery to terminate it.
