Sure But....: ...If there are absolutely no complications it works fine. But there have been casses of unexpected complications either to the mom or infant that in a safe hospital setting could have been treated that have led to serious issues including death, because of lack of expertise and facilities. The safest way is to deliver in an accredited place.

Delivery at home: Pregnancy and delivery should be taken seriously because not only the life of the adult (in this case the mother), but also the life of an unborn human being could be in in danger if adequate resources are not available in case an unexpected emergency develops during labor and delivery. You should have prenatal care and your obgyn is in the best position to advice you about delivering at home.
