Deliver your baby in a waterpool....accepted or unaccepted?

It is an additional option for mom in giving birth. It is said to be beneficial to mother and infants... Do you like to have a waterbirth? (if you're preggy) If you want to become pregnant again, would you choose it?

When I am expecting a baby I plan to give birth at home. It is a safe place where I feel comfortable at home for the birth of my baby. I feel that a hospital is a busy place that would be way too stressful to have my baby in. I wanted to have a home water birth for my first baby. The hospital didn't like the sound of that at all. The midwifes weren't experienced with water births. They allowed me to labor in the water pool and to get out for the pushing. So I hired a water pool. I found the water calming and gave me relief from the pain. In my second pregnancy I bought a birth pool in a box. It got blown up and it was still filling up when my second baby was born. I had such a quick and easy birth that time. Due to his birth being so fast I didn't bother having my birthing pool for my third baby. I had an agonizing time and a far longer labor when my daughter was born. I recommend a water birth for a lady that wants to have a natural birth. She could have a home birth supported by midwifes or a hospital birth if they have a birthing pool on site.

Well said maximax8.. Home is the safest place because we are use to environment. Sometimes just seeing our family members while your in pain of labor makes it ease. Congratulation, for you have experience waterpool birth...I think it's good experience to benefit the newest technology.

I understand you're feeling but gather information about this method on your own and you will realize how good and beneficial it is for both of you, your baby and you. At first it sounds risky and dangerous because it is not yet known to every country but sooner it'll be widely practice.

I personally would not want that kind of birth. I delivered 2 babies both in hospitals. I would not want that simply because I do not have the proper support system to help me get through with that kind of birth. I do however respect the opinion of other moms who wish to deliver with this kind of method. I do suggest however, that they study everything before going through with it because you are dealing with life here and it should be left with the hands of the experts.

yeah, i've heard about this method a couple of times, though i am not really aware how this would take place. i got curious when i was pregnant of my first baby and had myself researching on the subject. but then, i found very little results because it's a new method then, and it's not available yet in our country. aside from that, i'm afraid even with the word itself. haha... btw, i gave birth the normal method. good for me! :)

you and my mom got a point.. that's why I delivered my son in the hospital. And that was happened to me, I was in good shape to deliver my baby but after three times attempt I was said to be undergone in Caesarian method due to failure to descend. So I thought better to have it in the hospital for the security of both, mom and the child. Yet, if you like to try waterbirth its better to have a doctor right beside you...hmm, possible right??
