  • I want one sooooo bad!

    But a good place to talk about this is in the Natural Pregnancy and Childbirth group. Many women there have done a water birth and there are also many midwives and doulas there who have witnessed water births, all of whom would be happy to share their experiences.

  • I loved my water birth! The water is very soothing while you are in labor. The only time it really hurt was when I got out of the water. I loved it :D

  • I'm going for a water birth at home this time!

    ms.keisha-My entire experience, from the very first appointment with my midwife through pregnancy, labor & delivery in water at home, and postpartum visits, plus 24-hour on-call services and home visits is $3500.00. Our insurance is covering 90% of it.

  • I have had a couple~ they were totally amazing, I HIGHLY recommend this!!

    Mine were out of hospital, helping to better ensure a natural birth.

    They were free with medicaid coverage.
