    Very interesting results and great for those who want home births as a support.

    For me, living so far from a hospital I would never dream of a home birth due to delay in being able to get to hospital if I needed it :)

    Studies have been showing this for years, it's nothing new. But it is good that it's once again been highlighted.

    this has been what i thought was common knowledge for years. a midwife once told me they dont like mentioning it to people incase they are short staffed....

    Yup - in my area (I'm hoping for a home birth) they're very short staffed with sickness, maternity leave and at my due date, people booked off for summer holidays) so there are only usually 2, sometimes 3 on call. But the midwife told me home births are a priority, which must be a bit of a drain... I almost feel guilty! The on call midwives apparently cover the home births and the birth centres.
