Thanks everyone for sharing your stories! I'm definitely keen for a water birth, just want to be sure I have a better idea of what to expect in case it's not for me.
It's also the bath suite at my hospital that appealed to me, it's just so tranquil and calm in there and non-medical feeling. So far no complications that require me to go to hospital in early labour so hoping to stay home as long as possible and can use the bath and shower to get a feel for how it's working for me. I also have a TENS machine (won't use it in the water of course )
