Another lovely quote from @tellmeagoodbirthstory book 'Why Home Birth Matters'. I mentioned in an earlier post that I had a water birth with both my girls. I remember when I got to the hospital with my first pregnancy, I met a lovely midwife who suggested I try the pool. It wasn't something I had thought of as I prepared for the birth of my baby but I decided to give it a go and I really did love it. I know it might not be for everyone but there is no harm in giving something a go and seeing if it works for you or not. The midwives will always have our best interest at heart as labouring Mums. I really wanted the same experience with Jazmine but with the birthing pools it's first come first serve. Lucky for us, the night I went into labour the hospital was really quiet and we managed to get the same pool. Have you experienced giving birth in water? Please comment and share your story with us. .
