The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
"Where you have your baby is your choice, and you should always be supported in this choice." Giving birth is generally very safe for both you and your baby, wherever you choose to have your baby. Your midwife should explain that you can choose to give birth at home, in a midwife-led unit or in an obstetric unit. If you have had a baby before, your midwife should advise you that planning birth at home or in a midwife‑led unit is particularly suitable for you. This is because the evidence shows that: you are less likely to have interventions (such as ventouse or forceps birth, caesarean section and episiotomy) compared with planning birth in an obstetric unit the chances of your baby having a serious medical problem (which are very low) are not affected by where you plan to give birth.
