Hospital Birth Safer As Compared To Home birth

Being a mother is not at all an easy job. The first step of it requires is a lot of thinking and planning. Motherhood comes to women with lots of pain and agony and at the same time it is a sweet pain which gives heavenly joy.

When it comes to delivery baby, new mums need to be very careful in choosing the place where they would like to give birth. The home atmosphere is although very soothing and comforting, it is not always a safe place to give birth. According to a recent study, first time mothers should always opt for hospital birth as there are significant chances of baby receiving fatal injuries like brain damage and fracture to arms and shoulders.

There are a number of complications, which can be received by mother or child at home birth. However, these complications can be prevented with the help of medical professionals. The study has found that a significant number of women, giving birth at places other than hospital, are required to be transferred to hospitals as health a complication arouses.

Commenting upon the findings of the study, Dr Tony Falconer, President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, said, “This study has shown that first-time mothers wishing to deliver at home have an increased risk for their babies, thus raising questions about the right birth location for this group of women”.

The findings of the study have been published in the British Medical Journal. For the study the researchers observed 65,000 cases of home births. It has been informed that last year, about 2.5% of first time mothers opted for home birth. In home birth there are 3.5% higher chances of baby receiving fatal injuries. Therefore, it is advised that the first time mothers should opt for hospital birth rather than home birth.
