I read the title as saying there is no reason why you have to, not that you shouldnt. It means to me that birth is safe at home. Not sure if your talking about my post but I wasn't dissing hospital births, I was simply summing up what the study showed using a well known quote. If your familiar with Sarah J Buckleys work you'll understand the reference to intervention is also linked to the fight or flight hormone response which activates when you disturb birth ie. when you leave home.
Women should birth where they feel safe, I 100% agree, I just don't think that women should be exposed to an increase in intervention which doesnt change outcomes* just because they choose a certain location.
ETA. Actually imo it does change outcomes as I said in my post #16.
