Ok, so we have billions of pounds of synthetic chemicals consumed every year as patented drugs, with an army of degreed, licensed and doctored foot soldiers prescribing them recklessly under the once great banner of "medicine," in an ongoing war against the body's virtually infinite potential to generate symptoms, most of which are – ironically – a means to heal from acute or chronic exposure to synthetic chemicals.
Today research wrongly considers hospital birth as the gold standard. Bias towards hospital births causes the majority of researchers to ignore the fact that women could achieve even better outcomes than hospital birth, at planned attended homebirth.
In 2009, while 99.3% of US women delivered in hospital, 0.7% delivered at home. In response to this slight rise in homebirths, The American Journal of Obstetricians and Gynecologists issued a warning to all doctors and midwives to refuse to attend homebirth under all circumstances. In the absence of respected medical research showing planned homebirth to be unsafe, their recommendation is based on a single maternal death reported in the Daily Mail.
Sister Morningstar wrote a beautiful account of a birth which she supported over the telephone in the Spring 2015 issue of Midwifery Today. It reminded me of several births which I have supported over the phone. But this month, I had a new experience of giving midwifery birth support via Skype.
The facts clearly support home birth as a far safer way to give birth than a hospital birth.
Caesarean sections, unless strictly indicated, may be harmful to the health of mothers and their newborn babies. Two questions remain. Why are rates still on the increase? What can be done to reverse current trends? As a head obstetrician recently said, "If highly-paid soccer goalies won't practice evidence-based diving for the ball when they are paid millions of dollars a year, what hope is there for obstetricians?"
When twins are diagnosed before labor, both twins are head down and full term and delivered within 15 minutes of each other, attended home birth is as safe as hospital birth.

Yet another study, this one consisting of every birth in The Netherlands over two years, demonstrates that home births are safer than hospital births. Women are more than twice as likely to end up in intensive care if they give birth in a hospital! Nonetheless, birth has been medicalized, resulting in enormous harm to both mothers and babies.
"Mars Attack" is new term coined to describe unjustified violation of women by care providers at the time of birth, as well as the purposeful abandonment of the peer review system by major obstetric journals and the abandonment of the use of research evidence by ACOG in their latest protocols, in order to justify continued use of this form of violence against women.
Latest smear campaign against homebirth from Amer J ObGyn contributes to the wrongful and avoidable death of at least 100 mothers every year from unnecessary C-sections.
