In 2014, nearly 60,000 babies were born outside a hospital, the researchers said. While that is still a small minority of all births, the trend has been gathering steam in the last decade, the study authors added.
Women worried about COVID-19 infection or delivering babies alone turn to home birth to deal with ever change hospital restrictions. Meghan Perez, 35, a hairstylist on Long Island, is 26 weeks pregnant and decided on a home birth after originally planning to deliver at Stony Brook University Hospital. (Reuters Health) Newborns in the U.S. are much more likely to survive a hospital delivery than a planned home birth, regardless of how qualified the attending midwife may be, a new study. A new study of U.S. births in 47 states, from 2004 to 2014, indicates a small but growing trend: More women are foregoing hospitals in favor of birthing their babies at home or in natural birth centers. The study finds that, overall, the percentage of out-of-hospital births rose from less than 1 to 1.5 percent overall in that 10-year period.
The belief is that allowing and encouraging more pregnant women to give birth either in a birth center or at home will decrease such percentages throughout the country. But with birth centers being far and few between in Australia, it’s hard for women to get into one in the first place. Had previously given birth 5 or more times (7.5 percent) Were obese (more than 1 in 10) In many countries, these women would automatically be advised against having a home birth, the authors wrote in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology. Many U.S. states, however, don’t regulate home births and don’t have a licensing system for midwives.
Giving birth at home isn’t for everyone, of course. Women who are more likely to have complications during childbirth should give birth in a hospital. This includes women with: Medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, or diabetes.
