Home Birth vs. Hospital Birth: YOU’RE MISSING THE POINT, PEOPLE | ImprovingBirth

Lately, with the publication of data on almost 17,000 planned American home births, the “home birth debate” has been reignited, sparking all kinds of conversation – some polarizing, some rational, and everything in the middle. A glaring oversight I see in this conversation, though, is that, while statistics are helpful, what’s most important to families making decisions about where to give birth is what is safest for each woman and her baby, in their unique circumstances.

Should You Opt for a Home Birth or Hospital Birth?

Hospital vs Home Birth

Results of 17 studies show that opting for a home birth to low-risk pregnancies is far safer than choosing a hospital birth.

Homebirth vs Hospital: Statistics To Die For | Homebirth: Midwife Mutiny in South Australia

I noticed “she who must not be named” has been espousing the value of newly available statistics to show how dangerous homebirth is in comparison to hospital birth. Whittling Obstetricians do love statistics, because they too can be sliced and diced any which you want.

A link was kindly provided to the American Linked Birth /Infant Death Records for 2003/2004 where the statistics can indeed be sliced and diced until until they support your point of view. Well I’m not going to be left out of the fun! And as you will soon discover, the devil, as usual, is in the detail.

Key findings

In 2012, 1.36% of U.S. births were born outside a hospital, up from 1.26% in 2011.

In 2012, 1 in 49 births to non-Hispanic white women were out-of-hospital births.

The percentage of out-of-hospital births was generally higher in the northwestern United States and lower in the southeastern United States.

Home birth

A home birth

A home birth in developed countries is an attended or an unattended childbirth in a non-clinical setting, typically using natural childbirth methods, that takes place in a residence rather than in a hospital or a birth centre, and usually attended by a midwife or lay attendant with experience in managing home births. Home birth was, until the advent of modern medicine, the de facto method of delivery. Since the beginning of the 20th century, home birth rates have drastically fallen in most developed countries, generally to less than 1% of all births. Infant and mother mortality rates have also dropped drastically over the same time period.
