Re: If you planned a water birth...poll!
Planned water birth, achieved water birth for 3rd baby.
I voted - Other...... I would say - Used tub, loved laboring in tub, would not birth in water again.
During labor all 3 times - I love water. LOVE. Especially in transition. I really feel like water immersion is essential to my labors.....
I felt slippery during pushing. Even though it was a 15 minute process, not long at all, it still felt out of control because even with handles, I couldn't seem to stop slipping! It made me a bit frantic once the head was birthed and I slipped then needed to re-adjust and push body out. Not something I'll do again.
I absolutely will have my birth tub set up for this coming home birth... and I will love it in labor I'm sure! BUT I'll get out for a land birth
