    Default Waterbirth was wonderful

    I had a waterbirth with DD and it is definitely something worth trying if you get the opportunity. I think the water and warmth took away some of the pain and made me more relaxed. Every time the midwife monitored the baby, I'd pray the baby was okay - for her own safety and also so I wouldn't have to get out of the bath!!

    I'm so jealous! i desperately wanted a waterbirth but they wouldn't let me because bubs was too big....i spent most of the time in the shower so technically it was a waterbirth...maybe . i too found it water to be very calming and its the best pain releif.

    I have no other children so nothing to compare it to but I definitely wanted to stay in the bath - my own little space, I guess.

    It was still excruciating though - possibly because the labour was very quick. It must be different for different people - nothing like those pleasant birth videos I watched!!

    Never heard of a baby being too big as a reason not to birth in water. On the contrary, I think giving birth in water to a big baby would make it easier! 10, 11, 12 pounds, no worries as Jarrahsmumma said, our bodies don't grow babies that we can't birth.

    My 1st was born in the water, my second I laboured in the water and delivered on land. both times I only had minor tearing. with Sarah I had stitches, with Em I didn't. Have recommended it to almost every1 I know!
