Hungarian Cabinet Approves Home Births

2011. március 4.  

The cabinet yesterday issued a decree allowing women to give birth at home with the assistance of a midwife or obstetrician under certain conditions. The decree applying to births after May 1 stipulates that pregnant women aged 18-40 may choose where they prefer to deliver their babies, so long as neither the baby’s nor the mother’s life is in danger.

Midwives will be required to be licensed by the State Medical Office. Hospitals must be accessible within 20 minutes. Obstetrician Ágnes Geréb has been under house arrest since December for assisting in home births. Her trial is to resume later this month.
