try calling the miami birth center, 305-754-2229.
One of the most popular options at the Miami Maternity Center has become water births. First made popular over 30 years ago with research done in Russia and France, the basic premise of a water birth is that for 9 months, the baby is in a bag of water in utero and birthing into a like environment is gentler for the baby, less stressful for the mother and reduces fetal complications.
Some mothers choose to labor in the tub and then birth on the bed. Others choose to labor and deliver in the water. We encourage the mother to do whichever makes her feel the most comfortable. As you can see in the pictures, the water is not bloody and, in fact, is as clear as any Jacuzzi anywhere."
