why choose a water birth?

There is nothing quite like sinking deep into a warm bath at the end of a long day. Water birth has the same relaxation qualities for our bodies and enables the birthing process.

 

Water birth...

  • effectively promotes contractions and freedom of movement
  • lessens stress on the joints and in your body 
  • reduces the weight of your body
  • provides increased blood circulation and increases the flow of oxygen to the muscles
  • reduces the stress of labour and reduces the need for pain medication
  • is relaxing, soothing and comforting and aids in lowering maternal blood pressure
  • can aid in relaxation of the perineum, reducing tears or the severity of tears
  • is believed to offer your baby a gentler, smoother transition from womb to world
