  • I would give birth anywhere if only I could have another chance of a vaginal birth lol.. But i really have heard that it feels a lot better and relaxes you more.. makes sense

  • Ummmm....NO. I had three babies vaginally and I was very happy to be in a hospital all three times. My first delivery was complicated---placental abruption. And on the second day she had jaundice and needed the untraviolet lights.\
    Anyway, I had no problem with labor and I could manage the pain and contractions well. Hospitals are much safer. a BATHTUB? LOL. No way.

  • Not for me. Then again, my first time giving birth was by c-section. That would have been pretty tough in a bath tub, lol!

  • I had my now 10 week old in a birthing tub, the pain that was unbearable initially was almost obsolete once I climbed into the water, I don't think I ever want to birth a baby on dry land ever again.

  • I wish the hospital where I delivered had birthing tubs... when I was in labour with my son the hot water from the shower felt SO good- such good pain relief. I can only imagine actually submerging in a tub would feel that much better!
