home birthSince March 2006, midwives are supposed not only to help the mother-to-be make her decision about the type of birth she wants, but to support her all the way if they opt for giving birth at home. Home birth can be a wonderful, immensely rewarding experience that some mums have always dreamed about. Thankfully, with today's support and facilities giving birth at home is a very real alternative.

Why Give Birth at Home?

Most women opt for birth at home due to the benefits of the familiarity of their environment, the comfort of their home and the support of their family. Some of us can't put up with the impersonal treatment of hospitals and some of us frankly don't like to be told what to do in such intimate circumstances.
