Home Birth Advantages for the Baby

  • He or she is more likely to be born vaginally, without the breathing difficulties often caused by cesarean section and/or anesthesia.
  • There is less likelihood of infection when the baby is with the mother than the in newborn nursery.
  • The baby’s experience at birth is considered important and made as gentle as possible. Routine procedures such as deep suctioning and unnecessary stimulation are avoided.
  • The baby is not separated from the mother. The mother-infant bond is never sacrificed for institutional procedures.
  • Breastfeeding is easier to establish when the baby can nurse on demand and is not given bottles.
