This is the delivery place type where the pregnant woman plans to have her baby. The first intended delivery place type is recorded, as designated by the caring professional in consultation with the client. The initial intended delivery facility may not be recorded since there may be no history of antenatal care. For example, the pregnancy may not have been diagnosed or may have been concealed. In this case, '8 - None of the above' would be recorded.
