I've had 3 waterbirths and with each, I did not deliver the placenta in the tub. With the 1st waterbirth, it was in a hospital based birthing center and their policy was to get out of the water after the baby was born... with my 2nd, a homebirth, she had low (a 4/5) apgar scores right away, so I was told that I had to get out the tub right away. With this last birth, the placenta took about 20-30 minutes to deliver and I personally wanted to get out of the tub after about 20 minutes. The placenta was delivered after I stood up before I layed down in bed.
