Why home birth?
For many families, home is where they feel the most comfortable giving birth. Here they feel safe, supported, and are typically undisturbed as much as possible. Home birth with a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) has been shown to be a safe option. See the link below.
Outcomes of planned home births with certified professional midwives: large prospective study in North America
The study concluded that 'Planned home birth for low risk patients in North America using certified professional midwives was associated with lower rates of medical intervention but similar intrapartum and neonatal mortality to that of low risk hospital births in the United States. Women who birthed at home attended by a CPM experienced a higher rate of satisfaction and lower rates of interventions such as cesarean section and episiotomy.'
