Can you find me the link to the actual study? The link you provided is a word document that anyone could have written. To my knowledge there has been no major home birth study in Oregon. I dont know if this information is accurate just so you are aware.

ETA: Ok. so it wasnt a study.. it was just information given by Oregon on their homebirth statistics. This article explains why the deaths had nothing to do with the place of birth.
