Conclusion

The debate over the safety of home birth is deeply divided and emotionally charged. Reliable information is required to allow productive debate and informed decisions. In an era of evidence-based medicine, it is incomprehensible that medical society opinion can be formulated on research that does not hold to the most basic standards of methodological rigor.
