Research on Home Birth

Homebirth Study One-Page Fact Sheet
A 2014 study of almost 17,000 planned home births in the United States showed that for low-risk, healthy women, having a home birth with an experienced midwife is as safe as giving birth in the hospital. In fact, home birthing individuals in the study had a very high rate of vaginal birth (95%) and low rates of intervention.
