Water-Birth - Is it just me or does this seem to be rising in popularity?
I think it is!

Is this something you would be interested in?
Of course!

Does your hospital/Birthing Center allow water births?
My freestanding birth center does. NONE of the hospitals here do. They SAY they do, but it's almost impossible to get a birthing tub, and even then you can only use it for labor, not birth (not the same thing, IMO, and I wouldn't want to be moving around just before I'm ready to push, plus connected to an IV the whole time which the hospitals here never let you sign a waiver not to use...)

If you have had a water birth, what was your favorite and least favorite part?
I LOVED it. It just felt so natural to deliver in the water. I can't imagine delivering on "land" now HAHA. My least favorite part was pushing the baby out, though I think it woulda been worse out of the water.

What kind of tub/pool did you birth in?
just the tub they had at the birth center.
