Home births: 'Women need help to make the right choice'

A home birth carries a higher risk for the babies of first-time mothers, according to a landmark study published in the British Medical Journal.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Cathy Warwick from the Royal College of Midwives, said that the figures in the study equate to four babies in every 1,000.

She added that complications can happen wherever you are and that is important that women are given the correct help to make the right choice for them.
