Is an Out of Hospital Birth even possible?
Midwives specialize in the care of low-risk, healthy pregnancies and assist in the delivery of babies in the home setting or in birth centers. The number of out-of-hospital births in the US has increased by 75% since 2004 according to AAFP.

VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section) or any condition that requires a c-section
Medication controlled diabetes, epilepsy, asthma
Certain heart conditions,
Infectious disease ( HIV, Hepatitis, etc.)
