What is a Water Birth

January 13, 2015

Water Birth

Did you plan a water birthWe asked recently about your experiences with planning, and having a Water Birth – one of our wonderful gCommunity Rachael very kindly shared this amazing water birth picture
picture of herself and her beautiful daughter Asha (only a few seconds old) She says *sorry it’s so dark, that’s how I like it for birthing* :) But isn’t it adorable!? Thank you Rachael.

What is a Water birth

So, water can help you relax and make the contractions ‘seem’ less painful.  Many hospital and home births now allow you to request a bath or use a birth pool. The water will be kept at a comfortable temperature but not above 37.5°C, and your temperature will be monitored throughout.

Here’s an interesting video from the Royal College of Midwives about labour and birth in water.

The National Childbirth Trust also has information on using water during labour and birth.
