  • I want a water birth badly, it is beneficial for you and baby. Watch water births on YouTube. They are amazing!

    I tried with my son but ended up needing N episiotomy due to his head being too big and being exhausted.. Would love to try again but I’m not sure if I wanna give birth drug free again!!



  • I had the birthing pool which I used throughout labour and was the best thing ever but ended up giving birth on the bed.



  • Yes and it was AMAZING, it significantly reduced the pain (for me) and i felt so relaxed, i had an extremely long labour ( 48hrs – 38 active) the pool was my life saver.
    I plan on having another water birth this time! i highly recommend it if your hospital has the facilities!!



  • No – planned to, but did not work out. Good luck to those that did work out.



  • YES! And i loved it… my daughter is now 18 months… it was soooo much better than my first! (Son is almost 5) My recovery was alot quicker too!! (granted my first labor had some complications)
    But i was soooo much more relaxed in the bath. I recomend it to EVERYONE!
