I intend to propose here a summary portrait of the ANA (freebirth) as well as a reflection on the approach based on the conclusions of the rare ethnographic and narrative studies carried out on this radical fringe of adepts of the natural birth and to home in North America.

Addressing unassisted childbirth in a broader perspective: that of our relationship to the signs of pregnancy and birth and the displacement they have been subjected to (from the woman to the outside), or even their gradual erasure.

Matching the stories of women who go to birth centers with those of women giving birth at the hospital. There are many similarities between these two groups in terms of, for example, the meaning given to the birthing process, but it also suggests significant differences in perinatal experience.

High quality meta-analysis comparing supine with other positions for the second stage of labor. The only significant results are, supine vs others : more instrumental deliveries and more episiotomies, more pain and less satisfaction. None of the foetal outcomes shows any significant difference.
