A recent editorial in the Lancet says that “women have the right to choose how and where to give birth, but they do not have the right to put their baby at risk.”
And leading medical groups do not support home birth, yet they are becoming more popular in the United States.
Have you given birth at home? What factors went into your decision and would you do it again? Share your story along with pictures or videos of yourself and your children. Your story may be used in a CNN.com story.
