One of the aspects which has an effect in reducing mortality is the allocation of good quality services. The quality care for pregnant women and newborns in public health services requires practitioners who are competent and motivated with a good human resource too. The quality of midwifery care is a priority to reduce and avoid maternal and child mortality. It is also set as the theme for the International Midwife Day 2018, “Midwives leading the way with quality care”. The presence of a skilled midwife during delivery process is considered as the most critical intervention to ensure maternal safety. The purpose of this Systematic Literature Review is to identify the implementation of midwifery-led care services to handle labor in normal and low risk pregnant women. Method: There are 8 steps to make a scooping review. Relevant articles were searched from 2 databases (Pubmed and ScinceDirect). The articles were chosen using quantitative methods. Results: There were 16 articles which meet the criteria. The authors then divided them into sub-sections to facilitate the focus of discussion, namely the implementation of interventions for labor, maternal outcomes, labor, and maternal acceptance of midwifery-led care and obstetric-led care services. Conclusion: Midwifery-led service can minimize the risk of intervention during labor and increase normal labor and maternal satisfaction. Midwifery-led consists of continuity of woman support, continuity of care, and home-like services for women with low risk during pregnancy and childbirth. Labor services by midwifery-led care cost less than labor services by obstetric led care. In addition, midwifery led care also made mothers feel more comfortable and better prepared for childbirth because midwives prepared mothers with good health education starting from their pregnancy.
