Assuming the labour has gone well and there were no concerns about the babies health it's a safe option.
There would be not much more a paed could do than a MW in an emergency situation? So I don't understand your logic.

A RECORD $33.2 million in secret payouts have been made in the past year over bungled births in Victoria's public hospitals.
Where was the medical help during these births? Oh that's right they were the ones f things up!
A pp already mentioned that a midwife (there is actually 2 present at most homebirths, one for the mother anyone for the baby) actually brings medical equipment and you can transfer!

Elleandsam please put me on your ignore list. I am sick of you looking for reasons to argue with me. I have u on mine. I am not sure why you have come up this time.

All I'm saying is that I think sometimes people trust med pros too much. I get frustrated by the Ob worship that goes on (and I'm not saying that's you). They are fallible, sometimes with big egos and they make a lot of money from surgical births.
My 2nd ob is also my GP and he is brilliant. Low intervention, listens to his patients, love him. But my first wasn't like that.
bad stuff happens in hospitals too lets not forget that.

Um that's really rude, this is a public forum. Elleandsam has the right to read whatever is for public viewing if you have her on your ignore list and it's not working thats an issue between you and admin. Don't put it on her.

My definition of arriving safely is having an open mind to intervention if needed. So yours is no intervention at all ever?

At least them being at the hospital you are giving your baby a chance to recieve medical attention if needed.[/QUOTE]
Im sitting here looking at the homebirth kit in front of me. I have an oxygen tank, full resuscitation kit, defib, medications in the fridge, iv lines, iv fluids, catheters, right here in my home. I will have 2 midwives here when i birth. Two very skilled midwives. Not the luck.of the draw new grad in hospital running between several women. If anything looks like it is going pear shape they will pick it up much earlier than a midwife in hospital who may poke her head in every half hour or so. This gives me plenty of time to transfer the 3kms to the hospital by ambo. I have zero chance of unwanted medical intervention, thus zero risk of adverse outcomes for myself or.baby due to intervention. Tell me what further medical assistance my baby or myself should require at hospital?
