Just posted this on 2nd tri without realizing there was a natural birth board- I'm rather new to posting but would love to get some feedback on water labor and/or births. With our first, we had a typical course in the hospital, including a little fentanyl, epidural, etc. All went well, but this time around, I'm looking for something different. I recently switched to a midwife at our clinic and our hospital has a great setup for water birthing...I have never known anyone who has done one, but I'm seriously considering it. At least the water labor part, sounds like it could be pretty relaxing compared to laboring on my back (I was induced previously). Has anyone had experience with water laboring or actual birthing in the water? Is it possible just to labor in the tub and then transfer to the bed for deliver (would I even want to do that)? I am starting my research on water births but would like to hear personal experiences. Thanks!
