Little Baby Mermaid (Water Birth)


"I'm sorry... you want me to what? Birth my baby under the water?!" This study is looking at:

“water immersion during labor, before normal land birth (Shaw-Battista 2017). The study found that laboring in water poses no extra risks to mother or baby and helps relieve pain, leading to less use of pain medication. In addition, Shaw-Battista (2017) found that mothers who labored in water had less anxiety, better fetal positioning in the pelvis, less use of drugs to speed up labor, and were more satisfied with privacy and the ability to move around.” -Evidence Based Birth Now, tell me that hasn't caught your interest!!!!! Less pain, less anxiety, less interventions, more satisfaction and better movement?! Sign. Me. Up!!!


Did you utilize any form of hydrotherapy in labor? If so, what did you like most? Hot shower? Warm tub?
