What Is Water Birth?

The public has come to know what water birth is. Evidences based practice in hospitals, birth centers and home birth throughout the world show that water birth is more than a fad or trend. 
Water birth, as its name implies, is to give a birth underwater and it typically happens in a bathtub or inflatable pool filled with warm water. A newborn baby is fully submerged in water after delivering, but the baby is then brought to the surface of the water as soon as possible, head first, because this will enable him or her to start breathing soon after the birth.
The Benefits Of Water Birth
Water birth is a perfectly safe option and provides many benefits for both women and babies when conducted by midwives skilled in supporting birth in water. 

Benefits For Mother:
  • Warm water is comforting, relaxing;
  • Keep you from needing anesthesia;
  • Speed up your labor and delivery;
  • Helps lower high blood pressure caused by anxiety;
  • Lower of blood pressure;
  • Help you to conserve her energy;
  • Water can minimize your pain effectively. Buoyancy of the water makes you feel lighter and enables you to get into more comfortable and reduce your pain.
Benefits For Baby:
  • Provides an environment similar to the amniotic sac;
  • Reduces the stress of birth, thus increasing reassurance and sense of security;
  • More oxygen for the baby. Buoyancy promotes more efficient uterine contractions and improves blood circulation resulting in better oxygenation of the uterine muscles.
  • Are You Planning A Water Birth?
    If you decide to give a water birth, you need to talk to your midwife at one of your antenatal appointments. And at the same time, you also need to decide whether you will give a water birth in a hospital or at home.
