It was relaxed, I felt in control, I feel I kept my dignity, I didn't have to fight to get the birth I wanted. It was an amazing experience. I wish all women could have a birth like that!
I am about 2 1/2 months pregnant. I was wondering if it is still okay to have sex while you are at this stage of pregnancy? I have another question, too. During labor and delivery, can you have an epidural and still deliver in a tub of water?
Water is soothing, comforting, relaxing... Water birth is the process of giving birth in a tub of warm water. Many moms find laboring in the water is more comfortable. A water birth emulates the environment of the womb which might ease the stress of birth. Sound good? Learn how you can prepare for a water birth.
Last night, he asked me what my ideal birth would be. I told him without trepidation, I would LOVE a home waterbirth. Even before we got pregnant, I had read about it here on Pregnancy.org, researched them and decided that would be my ideal birthing situation.
