In brief: NOT WELL

Put your baby's health and well-being ahead of your personal ego, please.
According to published scientific research, home births are twice as likely to result in babies dying, and this is despite the fact that home births are supposed to be "low risk." look here also: http://hurtbyhomebirth.Blogspot.Com/.

In brief: DO NOT DO THAT

The american college of obgyn does not rec that as a little problem can turn into a disaster at home and I have seen the results from years of doing obgyn, no one can predict the future and mother nature does not always work right I have seen fetal death and brain damage from attempted home birth, this is 2013 not 1813 the only place you should deliverys a hospital or birthing center.
