How do I arrange for a home birth?

Ask your midwife; she will explain the procedure for this sort of delivery in your area. GPs do not routinely cover home births, however you may be able to find a one who will be able to provide care for you. Midwives and doctors will in general be much more positive towards a home birth if you are likely to have an uncomplicated pregnancy and labour (low risk) and will advise you if they feel that a home birth might be risky. Examples of high risk pregnancies where a homebirth would probably be best avoided include if you have previously had for example a Caesarean delivery, high blood pressure in pregnancy or haemorrhage before or after delivery in a previous pregnancy. Certainly if you have twins, also.
