Ive recently found out Im pregnant. I want a water birth (without drugs). I have vulvadynia and basically it causes a involuntary spasm of the pelvic floor muscles - over the past 2 years Ive been working with gynos, surgeons and a behvaioural medical doctor on this issue to the point where I can release these muscles.
So I want the water birth, as Ive heard it does help with the pain and then without drugs I think I could push it out more easily and control my muscles, without tearing or less tearing.
So, long winded question, has anyone had a water birth with an ob? Im wanting to go private with an Ob Ive heard wonderful things about. I did hear that Obs can be reluctant to do water births. However, this one is a go with the flow type guy.
I should really ring his receptionist and see if she knows but I thought Id get some info here first.
