    Not 665.04 unless her uterus ruptured at home before labor started. The best you have is 664.04 First degree perineal laceration, post partum condition or complication. There is not a code to show baby delivered outside the hospital.

    I did not find any E code related to that. The delivery at home is not as a result of accident, injury or poisioning, and sometimes is actually done intentionally. So I don't believe an E code exists, nor is it necessary for reporting. The "Place of Occurence" codes in E849 are secondary to the type of accident code, so this would not be appropriate to report a normal delivery at home.
