  • It was BEAUTIFUL!!!! I had my own and I've attended 6 (so far) as a doula. It was the single most peaceful experience of my whole life!

  • I haven't, but I've attended some water births, and not a single mom I've met who's had one has anything bad to say about it. I really hope to have one next time around. I wish more hospitals had tubs available in birthing rooms.
    The water takes the pressure off the back, it can help keep mama calm, and it makes for a nice transition for the baby when they're entering the world. It gives them a quick bath, too, which is a perk I know some moms love.
    It can be a really amazing experience, and I'd encourage any mom who's interested to give it a try. Nothing says that once you're in the tub, you have to STAY in the tub. If you're in labor and decide it's not for you, then you can always abandon that idea. =)
