    Default Water birth

    I had a water birth 10 months ago it was an awesome experience and was great pain relief. He was my first and I was able to do it drug free with no tears or complications...other than a sore tailbone! I highly recommend it. Was amazing seeing him float up to me.

    I'm going for it with my homebirth can't wait! Only heard positive things from people who have had waterbirths . Glad I read this post as it has reminded me I need to sign consent for the hospy incase I end up there!

    Water birth was awesome!!! Definitely recommend it, was so relaxing, took my weight and was all the pain relief I needed. Had my first on the bed and my second was definitely the best birth experience!! This baby will be water birth too, if my placenta plays along and moves up lol.. but it was so calming, relaxing, comfortable, peaceful.

I certainly intend to use the bath during labour, but will see how I go. If it's working and I want to stay there, then I guess I will. Otherwise, might try something else.
    This is what I did - I signed the consent forms but kept an open mind that when the time came and if I wasn't comfortable, I could just get out. I had said to dh that I would probably regret not 'trying' it if I didn't then for whatever reason was unable to have a waterbirth next time

    In the end, there was no way I was moving out of that water!

    Loved my waterbirth! DS2 was born in water, and it was far easier than my two land births

    I had one with ds#1 and loved it. I went in with an open mind and figured if didn't like it would get out. They couldn't get me out! I am a little upset that I can't have one this time round as going to a different hospital who don't do them. Think though that will defiantly be using the shower and bath as much as possible
