On radio 4 this afternoon. I am listening again on the interweb.

Interestingly, it says that maternity hospitals only came about for single mothers to go and have their babies away from disgrace and they were combined with foundling hospitals.

Worth a listen if you're interested in home births and birthing and the like!
