For a woman who is expecting, pregnancy is the most beautiful yet cautious experience ever. Many pregnant women choose to give birth at home because it offers them privacy and saving costs. Having the ability to have close family members and friends around all the time can also be very supportive for the pregnant lady. Giving birth at home can have tons of benefits, but there's so much to care about as well.
Especially, who really likes hospitals? The sombre atmosphere of hospitals can make any new mother feel restless and overwhelmed. It can lead to unwanted anxiety and pressure, something which no expecting woman would want. Hospitals are also prone to not just germs but in fact, superbugs! People infected and suffering from all kinds of diseases are admitted there or come as outpatients. This can expose both the baby and mother to major unwanted risks. There are also reliability issues with a few hospitals that can add to the anxiety.
Being at home during labour doesn't mean you shouldn't have qualified people around. Having an experienced midwife is so important, should there be any complications. You also need to have clean supplies and medicines at the ready.
