Abstract

The laborist movement was introduced as a means to improve the quality of care patients receive in the labor suite and decrease physician burnout and malpractice claims. This model of care has rapidly expanded, and there is evidence of its potential role in improving labor outcomes. This article outlines the different models of laborist care, reviews the evidence for its potential impact on labor outcomes, and discusses the economic impact the employment of laborists can have.
