Research On Home Birth


More and more families are choosing to birth at home as our modern culture begins to realize that hospitals and technology are often best reserved for only certain situations in childbirth.

Families plan to birth at home for a variety of reasons, but some of the most common reasons include the growing understanding that planned home births:

  • are more comfortable for the birthing woman and her partner and provide women with more satisfying birth experiences
  • provide a more natural birth environment that supports the normal physiology of birth
  • expose women and her baby to fewer medical interventions
  • have been found to be at least as safe, if not more so, than hospital birth in terms of maternal and fetal health outcomes
