my last 2 were waterbirths and both times the placenta was delivered in the tub. With Nola the tub was drained before it was delivered, with Kya they just scooped it out. I got out of the tub fairly soon afterwards. It didn't bother me sitting in gunk - there wasn't much blood though, lots of vernix. But my skin was SUPER soft for the next few days!! haha

both times I was in the tub about 15-20 minutes. I tend to deliver the placenta after about 10 minutes or less, so it's kinda hard to maneuver somewhere else in that time especially if baby is still attached
