Home births up 20% since 2004

Yay!

The New York Times reported that although home births still represent a small majority of overall deliveries, by the 2008 numbers they are up 20% since 2004. I’m sure we will see an even bigger increase once we get 2011 numbers.

This demonstrates that people are really getting the message that there are safe and viable alternatives to hospital birth.
