“According to the Canadian study, when out-of-hospital births are integrated into the healthcare system and there are regulations in place for how to select women for out-of-hospital births, I think it can be a safe option," said Jonathan Snowden of the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. “In our Oregon study we found that, absent a lot of these systems, there were small but slightly increased risks of neonatal mortality in the out-of-hospital setting." The lead author of the Canadian study, Dr. Eileen K. Hutton from McMaster University, says there is a major factor in Canada’s better record: the presence of midwives. “When studies are well designed and carried out, the data consistently find that when women with midwives in a system of well integrated home and hospital birth care give birth at home, outcomes are similar."
