In brief: Room for delivery

The best room for a home delivery should be well lighted, limited access to individuals who are not participating in the birth, and most importantly easy access for medical personal to transfer the mom to an emergency facility should the need arise.

In brief: A LDRP room

Many hospitals have family oriented delivery centers with a room designed for the multiple functions of labor/delivery/recovery and postpartum care.
Certified nurse midwives work with obstetricians to assure that help is minutes away down the hall should any problems arise.This creates the home birth experience with the safety of immediate urgent care safety.
