You can try www.waterbirth.org. I've never looking into info for it. I just got a pool and planned on getting in. LOL! Maybe I'll check it out myself!

There is a book called Waterbirth Revisited. It's pretty good.

I'll have to check those out too. We're also planning on a water-birth as well, but haven't read up on it yet!

I didn't really look much into details on water birth when I had Owen. I just knew I wanted the option, if I felt so inclined. I knew the benefits and knew it felt right. Maybe I will look into this info for this round too!

I had a water birth with my youngest and will with this one too. I never really read much on it but did watch a ton of water birth videos on youtube. Now that I've had a water birth I couldn't imagine doing it any other way, and due to the hospitals and birthing centers here in Tennessee where we moved to not allowing water births, I've decided to have a home birth so I can still have the water experience.

I never read anything on it, just seen videos on youtube also lol. That's kind of what sold me on it and I've had two now and they were wonderful!

thanks!
I do know that I have to take a class at the hospital before im allowed to even labor in the tubs there. I think its a 3hr class. Ive already done the tour so ive seen the tubs (they use Birth pool in a box).
Ive watched many waterbirths online already which is the reason I want one. They seem so calm and natural which is really what im hoping for
