Safety of Midwifery

Births attended at home by Direct-Entry Midwives are accomplished with safety comparable to that of conventional births. Birth at home, like birth in the hospital, is not risk-free. However, research has repeatedly shown the safety of homebirth for normal-pregnancies. Researching the options and being comfortable with the choice of giving birth at home is part of the work of pregnancy, the beginning of our work as parents. Many different types of information are available through the world wide web: Medical Literature, Research Studies, Essays, Testimonials, Bibliographies, and more.
