A multi-centred randomised perineal massage in labour trial (PMLT) was conducted in which participating midwives randomised eligible women in the second stage of labour. A survey of these midwives was conducted after completion of the PMLT, but before results had been analysed and presented. The aim of the study was to seek from midwives, following the PMLT, their reasons why some eligible women were not randomly allocated to a group; why others did not receive care as allocated and the midwives' views about the massage, including whether significant trial results would influence their clinical practice. (This paper presents the results of this survey.)
