Re: Water birth- Why you did/Why you won't
I never had any desire for a water birth. With my last one though (another unassisted homebirth) I labored off and on in the tub...it was a long labor (AFTER being complete, think he was asynclictic and had a huge head anyway) and it was just a nice change. I did end up delivering in the bathtub! Now I can totally see why people choose it. I still prefer delivering on "dry land", though. I just feel like I have more control over what I'm doing that way.
