  • Even if you don't actually deliver in the water, it's a nice place to labor in... Your midwife will have lots of information for you--just ask!

  • Natural birth is ideal.
    The less unnecessary risks, the better!
    If birthing in the water helps to relieve labor pains, calm and sooth, helping mom to enjoy her gentle birth then great!

    Age is just a number, what matters more is transitioning into Motherhood happily and healthily!!
