This paper deals with the concept of alternative birthing. The reasons for home births versus hospital births are discussed. A general model of an alternative birthing centre (ABC) is described. Some concepts common to alternative birthing are discussed, followed by a discussion of problems involved in initiating an alternative birthing centre. The article concludes that hospital-based alternative birthing centres are an ideal vehicle for modern healthy obstetrics.
