North Carolina in-home birth ends in tragic loss

Over the years, the trend for expecting mothers to opt to deliver their babies in the comfort of their own home has grown. Many states, including North Carolina, require in-home midwives to be registered nurses and undergo state certification to practice in-home birth. While proponents of in-home birth have legitimate reasons to tout their cause, real dangers exist, such as birth injuries, for those who choose this option under the supervision of unlicensed individuals. Such is the case, for a North Carolina family whose medical providers' negligence led to the wrongful death of their child during birth.
