I loved my water birth. I have nothing to compare it to tho. My contractions started at 11pm and I got in the pool around 4 or 5pm. It was instant relief. It didn't take away the pain, but it was so much more manageable and it was much easier to relax between contractions. I had a couple tears, but then again I pushed DD out in one push. My recovery probably would have been a lot better had I not transferred to the hospital because of my dastardly placenta afterward. Looking back, the birth seemed pretty pain free compared to what I went through to get the placenta out.
