In the Spanish state, starting from the mid-1970s, births have been almost exclusively carried out in hospitals and clinics. Indeed, home birthing came to be considered an outdated and risky practice. However, since then, mainly in response to demands and concerns that arose from social movements, home birthing has been defined as a model of alternative care with its own characteristics. In particular, theoretical approaches and feminist activists influenced its development, which, in terms of women’s health, made it possible to denounce serious shortcomings in the health systems; generate numerous and compelling criticisms of biomedicine; and create alternative and affirmative forms of care, such as groups centered on body self-knowledge and the self-management of health. The present article, using archival sources and data collected in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, seeks to delve into the contradictions and dilemmas that home births pose for feminism.
