The benefits of water

The shower or bath warms, secludes and relaxes a woman so she can open more easily at her own pace. It creates a womb-like environment in which a woman can feel safe. It may not take the pain away, but it provides a calming way for a woman to cope through the intensity of labor. Even if the mother-to-be should need any assistance or monitoring she can be attended to easily in her watery environment.


There are all kinds of Misplaced concerns about the use of water in birth, such as risk of infection as well as risk to the baby. There is a plethora of clinical studies to indicate that with proper treatment, the risks are no more than for air birth.

We have birthing tubs available upon request, ask us about how you too can give birth in a warm pool of water!
