Are there risks associated with planned home birthing?
Are there risks associated with planned home birthing? In low-risk multiparous women, home births have equivalent risk and fewer interventions compared with hospital births (SOR: B, prospective and retrospective cohort study). However, planned home births are associated with higher neonatal mortality when not risk stratified (SOR: B, single retrospective cohort study).
