Re: Pros and Cons of water birth??
Labored in the tub with DS and birthed on the bed (due to stalling and need for some interventions). I loved the tub for pain relief and it also created a "bubble" where I was alone (which I loved during labor). The only downside for me was that the pool was so big, and the tub so deep that I didnt really feel "grounded." I dont think I would have liked to deliver in the tub if I even had that option. I plan to labor in the tub this time, but deliver outside of it.
