Study shows lower rates of severe acute maternal morbidity and post partum hemorrhage among low-risk women with planned home birth compared to those with planned hospital birth.

"Low risk women in primary care at the onset of labour

with planned home birth had lower rates of severe acute maternal
morbidity, postpartum haemorrhage, and manual removal of placenta
than those with planned hospital birth. For parous women these
differences were statistically significant. Absolute risks were small in
both groups. There was no evidence that planned home birth among
low risk women leads to an increased risk of severe adverse maternal
outcomes in a maternity care system with well trained midwives and a
good referral and transportation system."
