04, May, 2020
This Week In Wellness a research article published in Biomed Central (BMC) has shown that women choosing to birth outside of hospitals, be that a home birth or a free birth, did so in search of the “best and safest” birth experience.
In Australia 97% of births occur in a hospital setting however this paper investigated 28 women who chose to birth outside of that system between 2010 and 2014, with 13 choosing a home birth and another 15 choosing a freebirth (intentionally unassisted by any health professional).
