Question for those who planned or had a water birth, did any of you go into hospital with the intention to have a water birth and decide mid labour that the water wasn't for you and you'd prefer to be outside the bath? Or did you just get in and out as you needed to?
I've read a bit lately about how a bath can slow labour down for some people and also trying to picture what position would work best for delivery in the bath. So far, all is looking good for me to be able to have a water birth - so will just come down to what happens on the day that might change this, so I just want to be sure I have a better idea of roughly what to expect. The midwife did explain that we can get out the bath whenever we want throughout the labour but that if you're out the water when the baby is crowning then you need to stay above the water for delivery.
