Creates a soothing and relaxing environment for the mother and child.
The environment that you chose to have your child in can make a huge difference in your child birthing experience. Having a water birth can give you privacy and allow you to listen to your natural birthing instincts. This allows you to operate on your own timing for your child’s arrival.
Immersion in water has been proven to help prevent medical interventions.
Giving birth is one of the most precious and valuable experiences that one will experience. Sometimes, the birthing process doesn’t go as planned and emergency c-sections and other medical intervention might have to be arranged. Having a water birth decreases the likelihood of having to have a c-section and so much more.
Increased privacy and autonomy that promotes more comfortable and less painful birthing.
Having a water birth gives you the freedom to move around and promote a relaxed birthing environment in which you have full capabilities to listen to your body. By facilitating movement, privacy, and emotional and physical relaxation it can reduce the length of labor by encouraging the release of labor hormones. One of the most important labor hormones, Oxytocin flows best when a woman feels safe, comfortable and loved. The environment of a waterbirth can help the body to use its natural pain relief.
