I'm only 20 weeks, but I've been thinking about labor and delivery since before I got pregnant. Because my insurance only covers physicans in a hospital, that's what I'm doing. I asked my doc if the hospital was set up for water births. He said they have tubs to labor in, but you can't deliver in them.
Why? And what's he going to do? Pull me out when it's time to push?
I probably won't put up that much of a fight, but I don't understand why delivery in the tub wouldn't be an option. I'm not high risk in any way.
