This rapid review examines the international evidence on culturally competent maternity services for Indigenous communities. It investigates the components of maternity service delivery models; effective models; and the barriers and facilitators of the successful implementation and sustainability of these models. 'Birthing on Country' service delivery models are defined as being culturally competent and improving health outcomes, and are largely community based and governed; incorporate traditional practices; involve a connection with land and country; incorporate a holistic definition of health; value Indigenous and non-Indigenous ways of knowing and learning; and developed by, or with, Indigenous people. The review studied research from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States, as action component 2.2.3 of the National Maternity Services Plan of 2010.
