Are home births safe?

There is a lot of talk these days in New York about home births. While this may seem like an old tradition, it is actually regaining in popularity. Many women like the idea of being in the comfort of their own homes when giving birth. However, there is some concern over whether a home birth is as safe as one in a hospital setting. According to the Midwives Alliance North America, studies have proven that a home birth can be completely safe.

The key is that you need to have a low-risk pregnancy. If you are high-risk or there may be chances of difficulties, then the hospital is the safest place as it has the needed medical equipment to assist if something goes wrong. You should also use a midwife who has been properly trained and certified during your home birth.

A home birth can actually have some benefits over giving birth in a hospital. It can lower the chances of having a cesarean section or interventions during labor. It may allow for an easier recovery, too. Not to mention the cost savings. A home birth is far cheaper than giving birth in a hospital, which is very attractive when you consider the expense of hospital and doctor care.

Babies also have good outcomes with a home birth. Only a very small percentage ever require hospital care. They also are not exposed to common medications used in a hospital setting during labor and delivery.

The bottom line is if you want to give birth at home and your pregnancy is low risk, there is no reason why you should not be able to safely do so. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
