Objective: Identifying the personal factors and prenatal attention associated with choosing the home for giving birth. Material and Methods: The study included 52 cases (fertile women whose last childbirth had been at home) and 208 controls (fertile women residing in the same geographical area). The study was carried out in the Pachacútec micro-network. Analysis was both bivariate and multivariate. Results: The cases' average age was 28 (6,5 SD) and 26 for controls (6,1 SD). Bivariate analysis demonstrated a significant association for different factors but these they were not confirmed when multivariate analysis was applied. The risk factors were the home as foreseen place for childbirth w=34,8 (p=0,0); OR=31,7 (CI=10,1;99,8) and prenatal attention supplier w=7,0 (p=0,0); OR=0,1 (CI=0,0;0,5). Conclusions: The home as foreseen place for childbirth and prenatal attention supplier were the factors which were highly associated with home childbirth.
