Home water births: This practice can be safe so don't panic. I am assuming your sister is experienced as a midwife AND familiar with water births. Water births can be a very rewarding experience but everyone needs to understand that if problems develop it transitions to a normal "dry" delivery and if needed transfer to a hospital. Another thought - can your sister live with herself if something goes wrong??
