Philosophy of Care:
Home Births: In accordance with the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the physicians of Pali Women’s Health Center (PWHC) do not advocate or support home births. The safest place for delivery, for both mother and infant, is in a medical facility that is prepared to immediately respond to a maternal or neonatal emergency. PWHC does not have any agreements with any home birth attendants to provide “back-up” care for patients with a failed home birth. In the event of a failed home birth, it is our opinion that these patients should be treated at a medical facility that has a neonatal intensive care unit so the most specialized neonatal services are immediately available. PWHC does not provide prenatal care for patients planning a home birth as that is not consistent with our recommendation and compromises our professional standards.
