There are definite advantages of a water birth if you’re a “mom in waiting”. Warm water assists in pain relief so the need for taking pain killers is reduced and you’ll find it a lot easier to move and change positions in the water. This will enable you to better handle contractions which will ease the birth process.
Having a water birth will also be better for the baby. The fewer drugs mom has to take, the fewer drugs will end up in the baby’s system, and the more comfortable and alert he will be.
If you are considering a water birth, you’ll need to find a midwife or doula who is familiar with water childbirth and will be able to help you through the process. You’ll also need to find a suitable birthing pool. These are available for rent which makes them quite cost-effective.
I hope this information will help you be aware of the healthy advantages of having a water birth and that you will find the experience a rewarding one, both for yourself and your baby.
