When I took the tour and visited the tub the nurse told me that they had many people labor in the tub but not deliver. He was hoping that I would try to deliver in the tub. Once I was in the tub there was no getting me out so that is how ds was born in the tub.

At home I labored in the tub but got out to push. Just that change made things move along quickly so I found the tub to be great in either situation.

There were no labor tubs available when I gave birth to dd. So stayed home and labored in the bathtub. That was harder because I had to actually leave my house after I was so relaxed.
