Giving birth at home

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.
