Water-Birth - Is it just me or does this seem to be rising in popularity?
in terms of natural birth i do think it is becoming more popular. in general terms, not really
Is this something you would be interested in?
yes, it has always interested me
Does your hospital/Birthing Center allow water births?
not many, i had to search a hospital out and drive 45mins to get to it.
If you have had a water birth, what was your favorite and least favorite part?
the heat and pressure of the water really helped ease pain. i tried the shower and it just didnt help at all but having my body submerged in the water helped so much. I really didnt have a least favorite part. I guess if I had to pick something it would be that I had to wait for the pool to fill which in reality was quite quick, in labor it seemed to be a long time.
What kind of tub/pool did you birth in?
birth pool in a box. my hospital provided it along with a disposable liner. Its the inflatable kind with the handles that are part of it.
