The aim of this descriptive qualitative study was to investigate women’s reasons for, and experiences of maternity care with a privately practising midwife. Data analysis from the fourteen women interviewed revealed three major categories characterising reasons for choosing private midwifery care: I knew what I wanted from my care provider; I knew what I wanted from my pregnancy and birth experience and I was willing to do the research to get what I wanted.
