We wish to correct the following errors published in Birth in December 2008: Essex HN, Pickett KE. Mothers without companionship during childbirth: An analysis within the Millennium Cohort Study. Birth 2008;35(4):266-276.
The p value for “Emergency cesarean section” should read 0.1.
The heading for column two should read “OR or log odds ratios (95% CI)” rather than “OR or RR (95% CI).”
The text that refers to the findings in Table 4, in relation to mode of delivery and pain relief, should read: “Being unaccompanied at birth was a marginally significant risk factor for having an emergency cesarean section (p = 0.1) and for receiving a general anesthetic (p = 0.05), and was associated with a significant increased risk of having spinal pain relief anesthesia (p < 0.05).”
