The Royal College of Midwives' campaign had run since 2005, promoting birth without medical intervention, such as an emergency caesarean. She denied that the policy had compromised safety. There are great benefits to birth without interventions, but they should be pursued in a way that is sensitive to every woman's situation, not as an article of faith.
But she conceded that it had "created the wrong idea" and would be ended.
Midwives have dropped their campaign encouraging women to give birth naturally, according to a report. "Unfortunately that seems to be how some women feel".
Indian woman killed in Pakistani firing at border
One woman was killed in Pakistan shelling along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Medhar sector early on Saturday. On August 8, Sepoy Pawan Singh Sugra (21) was killed in unprovoked Pakistani firing.
Their drive attracted criticism following an inquiry into the death of 11 babies and one mother at Morecambe Bay Trust between 2004 and 2013.
Prof Warwick said she does not believe midwives would have understood the campaign as meaning that normal birth should be pushed for beyond the point of safety.
Lesley Regan, president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said it is important to stress that "no woman should be made to feel their birth experience is "abnormal" because they needed to have an intervention".
