WHO is a Candidate for Homebirth?

You are a good candidate for out of-hospital birth if you take care of your body & mind by eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, making healthy lifestyle choices, and trusting in your innate ability to do what your body was designed to do.

Women who have diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure or other serious illness should deliver in a hospital under the care of an obstetrician. South Carolina currently does not allow licensed midwives to attend Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBACs).
