WHAT KIND OF COMPLICATIONS AND/OR INTERVENTIONS CAN BE EXPECTED WHEN GIVING BIRTH IN A HOSPITAL?
Many pregnant people want to avoid the risks associated with birthing in a hospital and choose to instead give birth at home. There’s a train of thought that it is “brave” to give birth at home, but there are proven risks to giving birth at a hospital including proven increased medical intervention.
When compared to Home Births, Hospitals have higher rates of:
The above are just a few of the many interventions possible in a hospital. Most of the interventions lead to other interventions. Just walking through the doors of a hospital almost doubles the chances of a Caesarean. There are very few OB/GYN’s that are wonderful and would like to provide a natural birth in a hospital. Unfortunately when you hire them you hire the whole hospital staff that comes with them, and they are the ones who are with you during the majority of your labor. These doctors also have to follow hospital policy that rules everything from how you will labor to when you see your baby after birth. Some hospitals have a mandatory “observation period” (usually 3 hours).
DO HOME births lead to medical interventions?
In in-home births attended by CPMs, the rates of interventions were substantially lower than for low-risk US women having hospital births. The intrapartum and neonatal mortality among women considered at low risk at the start of labor (excluding deaths concerning life-threatening congenital anomalies), was 1.7 deaths per 1000 planned home births. These results are similar to risks in other studies of low-risk home and hospital births in North America. No mothers died. No discrepancies were found for perinatal outcomes independently validated.
