Thanks for posting that. It just infuriates me to read about what the medical community is always trying to do to eliminate their competition.
ESTHER GRACE WAS BORN ON MARCH 23RD, 2009: 4:15 PM, 9 POUNDS, 20.5 INCHES. ANOTHER WONDERFUL HOME WATER BIRTH!!!
The world today is upside down because there is so very little love in the home, and in family life. We have no time for each other. Everybody is in such a terrible rush, and so anxious…and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world. -Mother Teresa~
My mom brought me the paper just for that article today (we live in metro Detroit). I thought it was very one sided, much more to the medical side. Why didn't they talk to any homebirth midwives? Also they made it seem as if twin pregnancies are automatically high risk, and the L&D of twins MUST happen in the hospital. I know that my midwives have had moms successfully deliver twins at home.
Then the article finishes up with the woman who had her baby girl at home and named her Cinderella. I can hear all the people against homebirths saying "Cinderella...see only crazy people have their babies at home."
Ughhh...thy just want to take away our choices and try to force all women to birth in hospitals.

Hedenkamp says there's no evidence that home births are unsafe for healthy, low-risk women and their babies. But doctors note the neonatal mortality rate is 1.9 times higher in home births than those in a hospital, according to the CDC's 2004 statistics.[/b]
Is that even accurate?
