  • You need a midwife. Some will attend home births. Personally I think a home birth is safer. As long as you have a low risk pregnancy I would go for it. Midwives can only not do c-sections. They can use any other needed equiptment.

  • As long as you have a professional who can attend to you, there is nothing wrong with a homebirth for a normal, healthy pregnancy. Chances are, your home is cleaner and much less germy than a hospital.
