We have not previously examined how rates of obstetric interventions might be influenced by the occurrence of an obstetric intervention in a previous pregnancy. In this chapter we look at the association between having an episiotomy, epidural anaesthetic, and instrumental or caesarean section delivery for the latest birth compared to the previous birth for women whose latest birth was in 2001.
