Spirituality of the birth experience can be a priorityFiling for birth certificate is parent's responsiblity, although some midwives do this
Homebirths involve fewer episiotomies and c-sections because the natural rhythms of the body are respected; these procedures are often done because of lack of patience on the part of the caregiverComplications can result if caregivers do not know what to do in an emergency
Arrangements for hospital care can sometimes be made in advance in case complications occurIn case of emergency, there may be a delay in receiving care as you transport to the hospital
