Water birth in hospital

Hi. I live near san antonio and am wanting to have a water birth but in a hospital just in case something happens. Does anyone know if there are any hospitals in the san antonio area that offer water birthing? I know there are birthing centers, but I would prefer still being in a hospital setting. Thank you!

Re: Water birth in hospital

  • @Knottie94381740 unfortunately, ACOG will not allow water births in hospitals. The closest you will come to that is the use of water submersion during labor. I think St Lukes Baptist Hospital is the only hospital in San Antonio that offers the birth tub for labor (lonestar midwives group). Kerville has a great group of midwives (Peterson women's associates) who also uses the birthing tub for labor! I had the pleasure of working with them last spring and they are amazing! I hope this helps :)
