The World Health Organization says:

It has never been scientifically proven that the hospital is a safer place than home for a woman who has had an uncomplicated pregnancy to have her baby. Studies of planned home births in developed countries with women who have had uncomplicated pregnancies have shown sickness and death rates for mother and baby equal to or better than hospital birth statistics for women with uncomplicated pregnancies.”

Many women view birth as a natural and not a medical event. They would like to have more control over their environment and to labor and birth in the comfort of their own surroundings.

It is perfectly reasonable to consider a homebirth if you are a low-risk expectant mother.
