Reaction to new home birth study

A new study claims low risk mothers could save the NHS millions of pounds by not giving birth in hospital. People have been giving their opinions on the findings at the ITV News Facebook page. Here are some of the comments:

Clair Hanson said: "Very glad to have had both mine in hospital. Home births are great if that is what you want but when you've paid NI all your working life you shouldn't be made to feel guilty about choosing to give birth in hospital."

Karen Lavender said: "I just had a home birth! I was treated better than I was the last time in hospital, the midwife was fantastic, and the experience was much more relaxing! The second midwife did not make it in time."
