    How is that not true? Is that not a reason for birthing in hospital, because interventions happen there if they are needed?

    You don't get many episiotomies, epidurals, forceps, vaccum assistance or caesareans in your loungeroom at home.

    I would rather have an increased risk of intervention and birth in a hospital where I feel safe knowing there is medical help available if needed. What if the baby needs intubating or resusing in the lounge room, or the mother needs a emergency caesar? It could be too late before the ambulance even arrives. In saying that I'm sure the atmosphere would be a lot nicer at home, I would consider a birth centre if there was one close to us. Both hospital and home birth have there pros and cons, I think it's just up to the individual on what they feel comfortable with.
