Many families today choose to have a natural birth at home when they are expecting a new addition. Medical technology allows expecting mothers to have more control than ever before about where and how they give birth. For many, the idea of being able to give birth in the familiarity and privacy of the home is a great comfort. Midwives are available to help couples with the home birth process to ensure that everything goes smoothly for both mother and child.
Most midwives study extensively and offer excellent care for families. They are professionals of the highest order and deliver many healthy babies into the world. However, midwife malpractice claims in Hollywood and South Florida do happen. Often, they occur because parents were not warned about the risks of home birth or because negligence caused serious injury to the mother or child.
