Planned Home Births in Ireland
The Planned Home Births in Ireland Annual Report. published by the Health Service Executive in collaboration with the National Perintal Epidemiology Centre, presents an overview of the home births service provided by Self Employed Community Midwives (SECMs) in the Republic of Ireland for the year. The report audits the home birth service by examining both the maternal and fetal outcomes of planned home births, including outcomes whereby the care of the woman is transferred for hospital care antenatally, during labour or postnatally.
