Question: is homebirth just for people who’ve had a baby before?

Answer:
No. Homebirth can be a suitable option
for any pregnant people having midwifery led care* and has lots of advantages (see https://www.facebook.com/855315194600206/posts/1982972391834475/?d=n for some advantages)

In 2019 32% of our clients were people planning their first birth.
