Versuch's mal hiermit: http://www.sendungverpasst.de Deutsche Fernsehsendungen online (allerdings nur aktuelles...die meisten verschwinden nach ein paar Tagen wieder aus dem Netz)
*waves hi*   Currently lots to do at home....it'll take me a while to respond. But I guess MDC and this thread will be around for a while yet  ^_~
The study was done in 2000, so 11 years ago. You wouldn't happen to know if there's a more recent one around too?   Especially since in the intrapartum and neonatal mortality was 1.7 deaths per 1000 planned home births....which is, as far as I'm aware, quite a bit higher than current rates for mortality at the hospital.
Geez. Just because you read something "scary" doesn't mean you suddenly have to be so scared, you go hide in a closet all day.
