310. Pregnancy and Child Birth

310.998 Home Delivery of Newborns


The Colorado Medical Society (CMS) believes that in-hospital obstetrical care should be a healthy, family oriented experience. The CMS supports efforts to educate patients about the relative risks of home delivery in order to enable more informed decision-making. The CMS does not support the practice of home deliveries in Colorado because of the increased risk for adverse outcomes for mother and baby.
