Where will you have your baby

Hospital or home ?

Pregnacy is a time of choices and decisions. Sometimes it may not feel as if you have a choice.
People tend to assume you will have your baby in hospital, especially if it´s your first.
But even if you are first-time mother you can choose to give birth at home. It´s up to you.

Your choice
Choosing where to give birth is important.
When you make your choice remember:

* You´re not choosing the place of birth. Often you´re also choosing who will be with you and the type of care you and your baby will get.

* Really you should give birth somewhere where you feel safe, comfortable and relaxed.
