You can do it at home! Yes, we're back to the time when women used to deliver at home, but now assisted with midwives, doulas and doctors. Why giving birth to your child in a pool instead of a hospital room?
You all know that feeling when you get in the water. Relaxed, right? A pregnant woman relaxes even more in the water, her pelvic muscles relax and her hormones' production increases. It will help her labor be easier and smoother.
Going through labor in a birthing pool helps easing the pain. How? Water helps stimulating nerve fibers and blocking pain fibers. That way, pain becomes moderated and the mother doesn't need to choose an epidural to ease it or anesthesia. Safer, no?
Water stimulates labor stage. They say it stimulates blood flow and helps progressing the full dilatation. This makes it easier to deliver naturally with less pain and risks.
Wouldn't you choose it as a way to give birth?
