Personally I wouldn't choose to homebirth/freebirth but I understand that it's a women's choice and that they made the choice after research and unfortunately suffered the worst possible consequences. Whilst they were suffering immeasurable losses, I understand that it was made to be a crime scene, the same as a death of any child in a home would be made into one. I don't see it is a point against homebirths or an accusation against the mothers any more than the SIDS death of a child.
The only point I didn't agree with was the woman who said the choice of how to have the baby is the mothers and the mothers alone as it's her body. Yes it is the woman's body but the man is the expectant father and I think the decision has to be one that you are both comfortable with IMO. You need the utmost support during any birth and if the father isn't fully supportive of the decision I think a compromise needs to be made so both are happy.

How can you compromise when mum is adamant for a home birth and dad is adamant not for one? It's sorta like circumcision, either mum or dad gets 'their way', both can't have their way because both options are opposite. You can't have a sortof home birth. It's either a home birth or not.
