In brief: Home birth

Most births go to completion without problems, however, labor and delivery complication are difficult to predict and if and when they do develop can have serious short and long-term ramifications.
If you live in an industeralized country where resources are available, i would highly recommend you deliver in a hospital setting where expertise and resources are available.

In brief: Possbile problems

Home births go fine 80% of the time.
The problem becomes...What happens to the other 20%? The answer can be-fetal, or maternal, death! there are many ways to accomplish the goals of a home birth at the hospital, and still have the safety that a hospital brings. While home birth can be a wonderful experience, is it worth the risk?
