Health Tip: Considering Home Birth?
-- Home birth is a safe option for many moms-to-be who want to deliver in the privacy and comfort of their home.
But for some women who are at risk of complications, a home birth may not be the safest option.
The American Pregnancy Association lists these factors for women who may be better off at a hospital when they deliver:
- Being diabetic.
- Having preeclampsia or chronic high blood pressure.
- Having had a prior preterm birth, or being at risk for preterm labor.
