Waterbirth

I offer waterbirth support and education, and think it is wonderful option for many women and their families.  Aquatherapy helps a laboring woman relax and handle her contractions, and can shorten labor or make a long one tolerable.  Women frequently catch and bring their own babies to the surface, needing little or no assistance from me.

Babies born in the water are calm and relaxed, and often open their eyes and look around almost immediately. I recommend using a tub called Made In Water that is specifically designed for waterbirth, but a bathtub or any large tub that can be thoroughly cleaned and fits in your house will do. Clients planning waterbirth are provided with lots of information and a list of necessary supplies and where they can get them.
