I would say, "actually, when birth moved to the hospital there was MORE dead mommies and babies. Better understanding of pregnancy, birth, better nutrition, etc. were the reason for better birth outcomes, NOT hospitals". And you might want to add in there that in USA at least, we don't have the greatest birth outcomes for women and babies in the hospital.
