tell me about water births
OK a little back story, my last birth experience was pretty good, I had an epi in a hospital but I was induced a week early due to pre eclampsia.
The birth was great but the healing was HORRIBLE.
Now I'm not pregnant at the moment but we have been talking a lot about our next baby which leads me to thinking if I'll want a different birthing plan this time. Water birth is the only other thing I would probably consider.
do you feel a lot of pain during a water birth? what's the healing like afterward?
do they let you go way past your due date so you don't have to be medically induced? (I really hated being induced)
