this study has shown that, in terms of costs incurred during the intrapartum period, the marginal cost of caring for women at low obstetric risk alongside women at high obstetric risk in a standard labour ward is small. However, the impact of establishing a separate midwife-managed delivery unit, requiring an increase in midwifery staffing levels, can be significant.
