The research for the US is clear. Home birth is more dangerous for both mother and baby than hospital births. It’s great that you are trying to advocate for women, but please don’t spread anti scientific narratives. https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN20N0R0

That was not a US study and is not applicable to US women. It is very clear from research that has been done in the US that factors are very different here, making hospital births much safer https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN20N0R0.

She is talking about the context of maternal mortality. In terms of maternal mortality, the research is clear that hospital births are safer.

I’m going to go crazy if I stay home for 18 months. I don’t mean metaphorically, I mean 100% literally. I already have anxiety and feel like I am teetering on the brink mental health wise. I have no idea how I’m going to survive this.

Nobody is taking my concerns seriously, even my father who is a doctor and forced me to stay home from work (meaning that I am going to lose my job). I am too depressed to do anything, even take a bath or go on a walk. All I can do is cry and go on Reddit and cry more and listen to everyone in my family joke about how I’m off my rocker.

You have a good response to criticism. Some things you wrote about things like home births I don’t really agree with (I think it should be an option, but I don’t think it should be painted as the safer one). I admire the way you’ve answered questions though and you seem to be trying to make the world a better place.
