Hi ladies! After watching "one born every minute" Lydia's water birth made me absolutely cry (when buns came)! So I was wondering can anyone here tell me about their water birth? Or give me advice whether it's a good idea or not? I haven't decided how I will deliver but I'm very open minded! Thanks x

My sister in law had a water birth and loved it. In my opinion if babies were supposed to be born into water you would have a sack on the outside. Hard to find anyone to do assisted water delivery in wa as considered too high risk for insurance purposes. Think water is a great means of relieving pain but at point of delivery should be done in the air. Purely point of view. Good luck.

I'm all for it, I think it'd definitely ease the transition from the womb to the world for bubs as well as the pain for mum. I'd like to use one in the future. I know a few people who used them and they were all rapt with the experience.

Op I saw it too and also got over whelmed with emotion as did my husband.
It got me thinking too lol. After having 1 child with the use of drugs then 1 child without, I think I would bow be interested in trying a waterbiryh.

On the Birth and Labour section there's a sub forum on water birthing. From memory there are some good stories there. Otherwise, do a google search, there is a lot of info out there. That's what I'm aiming for.

If we were meant to have cesareans we'd be born with a zipper (not being anti-section, just trying to make a point).
Just because something isn't the only primal way of doing something, doesn't make it wrong.
Oh and using 'insurance' as proof that its bad, is laughable. I'm sorry, i'm not laughing at you, just at the idea that insurance should be where we decide what's safe or not...not evidence based practice, or other research, but insurance company policies.
OP - wasn't the birth beautiful? I haven't birthed in water, but i've watched dozens of waterbirth clips on youtube. sends chills down my spine each time, but mums always look so chill

It's just an opinion. Like I said my sister in law loved it.
