No interruption of the bonding process at all. Home birth allows a woman to achieve the birth she chooses with no unnecessary interventions. To be in the comfort and familiar surroundings of her own home. This allows the woman's labor to progress faster and contractions to be more effective. A women is free to eat and drink, to stay well nourished and hydrated so the body can work to it's full capacity. Studies show that homebirths attended by midwives have safer outcomes.
