    I have my phone interview next week so I might just ask out of curiosity. It doesn't apply to me because I'm having a repeat c-section but I'm sure someone might stumble across this thread wanting to know.

    Be warned that water births are hands off. Meaning no perineum support from MW. A hubber from here had an odd experience.

    I don't think I had any of that support with #1 and tore. Tearing no longer scares me lol.

    Oh OK. I had good support for all three and didn't tear at all. That's why I mentioned it.
