Selected perinatal outcomes associated with planned home births in the United States

Hi Henci,

I am curious if you have done a critique of this study that was recently published?  I was hoping either you or Amy  Romano had done a review, but I didn't see anything when I did a google search for one.

Christa --

Thanks for the study. I talked to Sharon Muza, who is in charge of Science & Sensibility, and she agreed to my doing an analysis for S&S. It won't be out for a couple of weeks. I'll let you know when it's been posted.

Thank you Henci!  Apparently there were 2 studies in the same issue.  The other one is titled

“Apgar Score of 0 at 5 minutes and neonatal seizures or serious neurologic dysfunction in relation to birth setting”.
