Recently, I had the privilege of giving birth to my second child via a water birth. After quite a bit of medical intervention with my first child, I was determined that my second labour would be different, and all I had was a bit of gas (mostly air, the midwife told me) and the warmth of the tub. It was hard work but absolutely worth it to meet my healthy little girl at the end. I was quite astonished to discover that I had it in me to go through with it! And with the right tools and support, I would definitely do it again!

  • I would of loved to have tried a water birth, but our small local hospital didn’t offer that at that point. So you’re very lucky to have been able to do it your way


  • I couldn’t do a water birth. I chose hospital for both births in case something went wrong. My 1st was undiagnosed breech :/


  • Congratulations! It’s encouraging to hear good birthing stories. I’m so curious about water births and am looking into it for next bub.


  • Wonderful! Wanted to try this myself but things never worked out that way. Glad you had a good experience! And hope the baby is doing well.


  • Congratulations on the birth of your baby and for sharing your water birth story.
