Home Birth is a valid and
safe yet overlooked birthing option.
Here in South Africa, we have one of the highest
caesarean rates in the world (on average 70% in private hospitals and about 30%
in government hospitals...it is recommended that a country's caesarean rate
should not excede 15%). Women are realising that in a hospital environment their
options and freedom to give birth as they wish,are often limited through
hospital routine protocol and intervention.
