It's impossible to take statistics from homebirths in England or The Netherlands and then conclude a homebirth is safe in the United States.
In The Netherlands and Great Britain midwives are well trained, patients are well selected and there is a good connection between the home and the hospital. Their data show that homebirths outcomes can be better than outcomes of homebirths in the US.
In the US 2/3 of midwives are lay midwives, they are not really midwives, even though they give themeselves the name of CM or "certified midwives". These lay midwives would not be able to be called midwives in England or the Netherlands because of their inadequate training. They are not accepted internationally as midwives. In fact, even the American College of Nurse Midwives does not consider lay midwives as midwives. Only certified nurse midwives (CNM) are considered midwives. Only CNMs can get hospital privilges, not lay midwives.
In addition, there are no criteria in the US to select patients for homebirths while in England and the Netherlands there are clear criteria. This combination leads to less trained and credentialed midwives in the US who deliver most patients at home that are not well selected and have more risks. The results are a much higher neonatal mortality rate in the US when compared to hospital births.
