We are TTC and I'd like to tour a new birthing center that is about an hour and a half away. It's the only birthing center nearby that offers the option to have a water birth, and is covered by my insurance.
Our first daughter turned two in October. Her birth was fairly uncomplicated, I was in labor for a long time though and had to be given pitocin, so I was strapped to the bed and had an epidural. We didn't have any problems with it, I just really would like to have a natural, water birth. What do I need to know to be prepared for it? How does it differ from a hospital birth, and what questions should I ask the dr and/or midwives?
