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.

It's a provocative title - that's media for you. Meant to turn heads. But I don't read it as an attack on hospy births - just that the act of birth is not a reason, in itself, to go to hospital.

With regards to the fight or flight response hormone, what if I feel safer in a hospital though, wouldnt going there reduce my fight or flight response? For some people who are more comfortable at home then obviously its better if they stay there but surely its not the case for everybody?

Absolutely soccer mum and that's exactly what birth choices are about. You birth where you feel safe, comfortable and supported!

Plenty of people are jerks, no matter what their birth preference is.
It's homebirth that's currently under threat though, so it saddens me when a thread that is a bit of a "win" for the very small number of us who deserpately want to birth at home, is being turned into a, "Well some homebirthers are b*tches, blah blah blah..." because that's honestly got little to do with anything the report is about. It's about declaring that homebirth is a reasonable option for those who are not high-risk... and that's a GREAT thing, because although it;s pretty much common knowledge amongst homebirthers, it's great that something like this being shared with the general public who can often be very critical of the choice to have a baby at home.
