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

Thanks for the posts. I have a better understanding of why some dislike laboring in water. I can understand how you might feel less in control because bouyancy.

The birthing tub at the hospital looked like an enormous bath tub. It had all kinds of handles, foot rests both inside and outside so that you could really grab and push. There were jets if you wanted. There was room for dh but I would not have wanted him in there with me. His job was to pour water over my shoulders.

I'm considered VBAC even though only my first was a c-section and the rest were vaginal. I only had to have an IV line ready but didn't really need any other monitoring. That could be because I didn't need induction.
Here to help if I can.
