 Home, the most fundamental institution in the society, is established for comforting and security feelings. Therefore, WHO in a Fact Sheet of the "Maternal Support" in 1986, emphasized that home: "is the most suitable place for majority of Laboring Women and delivery for child birth". To determine the women's reasons of home delivery preference and its complications in koohdasht city 750 women were selected in the year 1381 in this study.

 The design was a descriptive study and the data were gathered through a questionnaire.

 The study findings revealed that the woman's reasons for home delivery based on the financial problems (32%), personal willingness (39.9%), past home delivery positive experience (37.2%), short time delivery duration because of the fear of complications during transportation to hospital (35.7%), unavailability of their husbands during labor (20.5%). A also adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as early hemorrhage, inertia, constipation, urinary retention, perineal laceration, in women with home delivaries were perceived less than the women with hospital deliveries.

 Because many complications occur in the home deliveries, it is recommended that low risk pregnant women should be under support and midwifery care of educated midwives as well as organized, health care systems.
