Has anyone had a water birth?

My dream was to have a water birth with my son. It didn't work out. I ended up having an emergency c-section. I would love to hear about a water birth if anyone wants to share.

  • I've had 3 water births. It hardly hurt once I was in that water. I won't have it any other way for any more babies we have.

  • My best friend had one 24 years ago. She just had another baby in the hospital recently and she said it didn't hurt like that in the water! I wanted one too, but I'm just too high risk. :(

  • My DIL had her last baby that way. She raved about it and wished she had the other two that way.

  • I want one SO badly for the next one. I've attended water births, and they're amazing! Everyone I know that's had one swears by them.
