So my ex-local hospital (where I had my boys before we moved) has just announced that women can no longer have water-births there. Their reason is that their whole birthing procedures are under review, and until conclusions and new guidelines have been drawn up, they will not under any circumstances allow women to birth in water. They do say, however, that women are welcome to use the water facilities during their labour.
So, the local newspaper linked to their article on FB, and invited people to comment. This man commented, which drew a lot of flaming from women.
WDYT- is his opinion valid, or should he keep quiet because he doesn't *truly* know what it's like to give birth?
