Résumé (français)  :

Article sous forme de débat contradictoire entre l’accouchement à domicile et en structure pour une patiente à bas risque.

Abstract (English)  :

Ms. Lezack is a 31-year-old woman who has had one uncomplicated full-term spontaneous vaginal delivery. She is a healthy woman with no relevant medical or surgical history. She is now at 35 weeks’ gestation with her second child and is here for a routine prenatal care visit.

She has been very thoughtful in her participation in prenatal care, and this pregnancy has been straightforward to date. She and her husband are expecting a baby boy. Her first-trimester screening and anatomy screening indicate a very low risk of anomalies. Your examination today is reassuring; ultrasonography performed at bedside confirms that the fetus is in vertex presentation.

Ms. Lezack delivered a baby girl 30 months ago in your hospital. She remembers the birth of her daughter fondly but believes that she would have had a more satisfying experience if she had delivered at home. She has a friend who recently gave birth at home and says that it was a wonderful experience. Ms. Lezack tells you that she is very interested in pursuing a home delivery and she would like to understand her options. She seeks your opinion on home delivery and asks, “Is home birth a reasonable option for me?”
