i am going to ask our midwife this when she does our home visit:) We have a garden tub but I am not sure if it will be deep enough.. we will see as I get bigger if I can submerge my belly enough:) also I have a friend who really wanted a waterbirth.. when she was in labor, she HATED the water.. both her babies ended up being born on land:)
I am giving birth in a birthtub in the nursery..or thats the plan
I like to labor in the shower but I don't think it would work to give birth in a regular bathtub - not deep enough and not enough space to move, unless you have a jacuzzi-type tub. So I would definitely go with a birthing tub/fishy pool type of thing.
I planned to deliver my second baby standing in the shower (to contain the mess) but ended up doing it on the bathroom floor instead.
