I came across a great article on waterbirth tonight. I think we all felt the same way about the information that was in the weekly update, as Andrea posted.

I wanted to post this link to a great article about effects of water during pregnancy, as well as labor and delivery. It even states clearly that large studies have been done proving that it is safe and is as effective as narcotics, without the side effects!

Thank you for sharing! I was happy to hear what she said about the water being such a natural pain reliever. I knew that and have heard that it helped with the pain, but to have it described as being a 3 versus an 8, is almost a relief. I never knew it could make such a huge difference, and now I'm even more excited to jump in that tub when in labor.

Wonderful article, not just about water birth itself but on playing in water with a young baby and teaching them to hold on to that mammalian dive reflex. Facsinating!
