Home Births Increase By 20%

Goodbye hospital waiting rooms, hello living room!

Home births have risen by 20% over the last four years as a subculture of predominantly white women who would rather skip the hospital visit grows.

Still, less than 1% of US births happen at home.

Said the lead author of the study, Marian MacDorman:

"I think there's more of a natural birth subculture going on with white women — an interest in a low-intervention birth in a familiar setting."

Some states had a much higher rate than others. Montana, Vermont and Oregon had the most home births — about 1 in 50.

Our biggest concern with home births — messy…

LOL!
