Home vs Hospital - Location is key for expectant mothers
This article provides stats, natural birth experts, midwives, OB/GYNs for and against or weary of homebirth. The last sentence by Dr. Ballas at Carroll County Hospital, an OB/GYN, states, "Everything in a homebirth you can do in a hospital." That is absolutely false. In his hospital, there are no midwives, no birthing tubs, no birthing stools and much higher rates of intervention, morbidity and mortality than one would find in a homebirth.
