I loved the idea of a water birth...but I hate having a bath, and it turns out that I was much happier in the shower when in labour.
Yeah you do need to keep topping up with warm water. Dh spent most of my labour topping up the water!
Question for those who had a water birth - what happens when you need to pee? Do you get out of the bath every time or just pee in the bath? I'm literally peeing every 5 minutes right now, I can't imagine having to get out of the bath every 5 minutes (if I was in labour)
I didn't need to pee but.. I would just go in the bath if you are close to birthing. Just remember, people poo themselves in the bath sometimes.
