I gave birth in water. My first was a hard but quick labor (9 1/2 hours) that ended with an epidural. I had horrible back labor.

The second time, I got in the tub as soon as I knew I was far enough along that it wouldnt stall things. I still had back labor, though not as bad, and as long as I stayed either upright (and leaned over) or on my hands & knees it was at least tolerable. Sitting back or laying down was excruciating though.

All in all - Id say water & just plain sucking it up & yelling (ok, LOUDLY moaning lol).
