    Question Water Births in Public Hospitals- is it done?

    ... or is it really only through birthing centres? If I'm eligible for a VBAC I'd really, really prefer it to be a waterbirth... but I live in a small town where there is no birthing centre, and a homebirth is just not for me (for peace of mind reasons).

    So do public hospitals do them, or do they just flat out refuse?

    I am going public and a vbac2 when i am UTD but i have already been told that a water birth is not an option at all, due to the increased risk in the birth already.

    Why is it dangerous? That's ridiculous, right?

    Default Water Births in Public Hospitals- is it done?

    My hospital wouldn't let me labour in the bath (waters already broken when I arrived) let alone actually birth in the bath!!
    Many hospitals baths aren't really suitable for actually birthing in with good access etc. What a shame!!
