The Homebirth forum is for parents and parents-to-be to learn more about homebirth, share their personal experiences, get support to have a safe homebirth, or discuss their extenuating circumstances to help them make a decision about birthing at home. Posts made purely for the purpose of debate and criticism of homebirth are not appropriate. Topics of concern, including discussion of the risks and instances wherein homebirth might not be a good choice for a particular pregnancy or presentation may be examined and discussed critically by members who post to this forum regularly as supporters and advocates of homebirth.

Please see our forum Disclaimer to ensure that your posts neither seek nor give medical advice.
