Further to my comments on the misuse of the study data to generalize for political purposes, please see the accompanying NEJM editorial by Green and Ecker. The last paragraph reads:
"The present data empower women to make rational decisions about their choices regarding planned place of delivery. Women who plan outof-hospital birth to avoid obstetrical interventions now have important information on the associated rates of perinatal complications, and those who choose hospital birth to minimize their risks of perinatal complications now have a better idea of the magnitude of the actual reduction in risk. Ultimately, women’s choices for place of delivery will be determined by the extent of their tolerance for risk and which risks they most want to avoid." This is softer version of what they have been saying in the press.
