I had a joyful and safe home birth last year and I am also a doula and childbirth educator. I fully support Andaluz and homebirth midwifery in general as a safe and beneficial option for women who feel that is the option they desire. Women have the right to choose their own birthplace. As for breech and twins, there is a good reason why homebirth midwives in Oregon are allowed to assist these births - because they are prepared for these types of births and because women's bodies are capable in most situations of birthing babies in a variety of presentations. I wish for a world (or at least a city) where homebirth and hospital birth can coexist harmoniously, with respect and collaboration between providers.
