True-several studies have found that birthing at home under the care of a trained attendant (midwife or doctor) is safe for healthy women carrying normal pregnancies. one of the largest of these studies was carried out in the netherlands, where 1 out of every 3 babies is born at home! Modern home birth is safe - midwives attending women at home carry oxygen, drugs to stop excessive bleeding and iv equipment, and monitor the health of the mother and baby carefully. the proven safety of home birth allows women to choose their ideal birth place- at the hospital or in their own home.
