I was just wondering if there was anyone who has tried a water birth and has also given birth out of a tub that could tell me how contractions compare. I've heard that being in the water helps with pain but im just curious as to how much really. I decided on a water birth in my home but the closer i get the more nervous i get about not having the option to get an Epi. I'm afraid the water will not ease me enough and i will be to the point of passing out from the pain. I know it's not good to think this way but it makes it even harder when you have people pleading for you to do it in the hopstial rather than at home. Any feedback on this subject is appreciated, i'm going crazy and getting knots in my stomach thinking about the final day.
