More than 50,000 cases of midwifery-led care will now be available to researchers thanks to the validation of the MANA stats 4.0 dataset. This key achievement makes MANA Stats by far the largest available dataset on physiologic birth and midwife-led care in the United States. Of particular interest to researchers is that MANA stats is based on medical records, which are considered to be the "gold standard" of health care research.
