Studies indicate birthing out of the hospital is a safe option for those with low risk pregnancies.

Health outcomes are often improved for those choosing to birth out of the hospital with the quality care of a trained midwife.

Research indicates those choosing out of hospital birth have:

  • fewer cesareans
  • decreased interventions
  • increased breastfeeding rates
  • increased satisfaction with experience
