(CNN)--More women are giving birth at home.
According to a new study in the journal 'Birth:Issues in Perinatal Care' women having babies at home increased 20 percent between 20-04 to 20-08.
The change -- mainly due to a 94 percent increase in home births in white women.
Home births increased significantly in 27 states during this period -- only four states saw declines.
The highest increase was in Montana.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says although the risk of planned home births is low, research shows it does increase the risk of newborn death.
