A "home birth" is when a woman chooses to give birth in her own home rather than in a hospital. Some women prefer the idea of a home birth for a variety of reasons - for instance, it can give mothers greater freedom during their labor to move, eat and bathe. It can also give mothers the comfort of giving birth in a familiar place, surrounded by people they love. However, home birth can also present unique challenges and risks, so, if you're considering a home birth, it's important to understand exactly what the process entails well in advance of your labor. See Step 1 below to get started.
