Most women still give birth in hospitals, but midwives hope to change that

If more pregnant women delivered their babies at midwife-led birth centers, the nation’s C-section rate would go down and cost savings would go up.

Midwifes can't give epidurals or pain meds so how could this work very well? These younger generation has no clue what going through real full blown labor is like because as soon as they feel a semi bad cramp they're yelling for an epidural

Pain is not the issue for mothers wanting to avoid unnecessary c-section surgeries, and vaccinating the child.

You want to avoid the pediatrician altogether and schedule with the midwife for advice on natural birthing. Sonoscans are ran to make sure everything is alright and that it can safely be done outside the hospitals.

The MANA death rate for the same years was 5.5X HIGHER. In other words, the MANA death rate was 450% higher than the hospital death rate.On what planet is a death rate 450% higher than expected a safe outcome? Not on this planet.

Home births still rising

ATLANTA (AP)— Home births have risen to their highest level in about four decades but are still only a fraction of all births, according to a new government report released Tuesday.

A little more than 1 percent of U.S. births occur at home, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.

In the 20th century, births shifted from homes to hospitals. Out-of-hospital deliveries were down to 1 percent by 1969.

But around 2004, they began inching up again and reached about 1.36 percent in 2012. That translates to about 35,000 births in homes and another 16,000 in freestanding, birthing centers

The proportion of white moms delivering outside hospitals rose to 1 in 49. For Hispanic, black and Asian mothers, it is around 1 in 200.

Experts believe there's been a culture shift among many white women, who question high rates of cesarean sections in hospitals and have come to think of home births with midwives as a preferable alternative.

"They are having conversations about it and influencing each other," said Mathews, a CDC demographer.

Yes but what you so shamelessly failed to put in your post while trying to promote this shill profession was that HOME BIRTH DEATH RATES ALSO INCREASED. With the ACA and the expansion of medicare there is no justifiable reason to allow this kind of draconian crap to go on. If a person loves and cares for there unborn baby they will see to it that they do everything possible to safeguard there life.
