Re: Water birth- Why you did/Why you won't

I labored in the tub with both my babies. With my DD, I pushed for a while in the tub then got out to try other positions and actually birthed on the birth stool.

With my DS, he was born really quickly just a little while after I got in the tub.

My second birth was much faster and easier in general. I don't think it really had anything to do with actually birthing in water. For my next birth, I'll definitely have water available to labor in, but I may or may not birth in it.
