"MANA Home Birth Data 2004-2009"
New Home Birth Study from the MANA Statistics Dataset Shows That Planned Home Birth with Skilled Midwives is Safe  for Low-Risk Pregnancies

Read CfM's summary of the articles' findings and some considerations for consumers regarding the data's results HERE. 

View CfM's one page fact sheet of the study's results HERE. 

As of January 2014, this is the largest study of planned, midwife-led home birth in the U.S. to date. Outcomes are reported for nearly 17,000 women who went in to labor intending to deliver at home between 2004 and 2009. Results for low-risk mothers are consistent with most studies of planned homebirth.
