Background: Midwifery led care (MLC) is a model of care in which perinatal care is provided to women throughout different phases of childbirth by a midwife. Objective: This paper aims to provide a literature review on MLC. Methods: A variety of databases and reports were considered to do the literature review on MLC. The search was limited from 1991 to 2011 by using keywords. A total of 50 articles were critically appraised for this review. Findings: The main theme that emerged was women’s satisfaction with MLC. Satisfaction was integrated with midwife’s presence throughout childbirth, experience to enhance normality in childbirth, cost-effectiveness of MLC, and facilitation of women’s choice and control during labor. Conclusion: The review concludes that MLC is women-friendly as it considers and respects women’s needs holistically during childbirth.
