Birth Centers are safe
The safety and wonderful outcomes of out of hospital Birth Centers for low risk women has been well documented. The New England Journal of Medicine released a study in 1989 supporting the safety of free standing Birth Centers. This study was confirmed and supported by a January 2013 study by the American Association of Birth Centers published in the Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health.
The 2013 study demonstrated that free standing Birth Centers have low transfer rates (12%) with most being non-emergency (1.9%). Birth centers reduce many standard hospital interventions such as labor induction, electronic fetal monitoring, epidurals and routine IVs. The cesarean birth rate was 6% (94% of women including hospital transfers, had a vaginal birth). This study demonstrates the safety of the midwifery-led birth center model of care, as well demonstrating low obstetric intervention rates, similar to previous studies of birth center care.
These studies concluded that birth centers are as safe as hospital environments for delivering babies to low-risk mothers.
The value of Midwifery Care and decreasing intervention is well documented. These findings are particularly remarkable in an era characterized by increases in obstetric intervention and cesarean birth nationwide.
