Women should have the right to choose but they must be made aware that when complications arise they can be sudden and serious. A trouble- free pregnancy is no guarantee of a trouble-free delivery.

This surely is the ideal - a relaxed, homely atmosphere but with medical expertise close at hand. That way we can minimise the serious consequences for both mother and child when difficulties arise.
