HUDSON — As a percentage of all births in the United States, the number of planned home births is very low.

But after declining from 1990 to 2004, home birth is on the rise again. Between 2004 and 2009 the number of home births increased by 29 percent, from .56 to .72 percent of all U.S. births, according to the Centers for Disease Control. For non-Hispanic white women, it was 1.09 percent in 2009.
