A Water Birth Story

We have heard rave reviews about birthing in water, especially from our midwife. She says that it really helps with pain and also with tearing as you deliver. I've definitely heard of it as a great experience, but never thought it was 'for me' but then again, I NEVER thought a homebirth was 'for me' 3 months ago either! We are now planning on having a birthing pool during our delivery. If I like it, great, if not, then it was worth a shot.

Here's a wonderful article on a couple who decided on a water birth and their experiences.
