To quote the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology - 'The relative risk versus benefit of a planned home birth, however, remains the subject of debate.'
There are those that are highly opposed to any and all home birth and there are those that think if criteria is met, home birth is a truly safe and lovely thing. Some people think hospitals are for sick folks and healthy women don’t need to give birth in a hospital. I actually fall in the middle of those schools of thought so with this post I can likely tick off either of the far ends of the spectrum.
When you can make all of the people mad at once, that’s good times.
