Water Birth Safety

Birth Tub Safety

Risks of waterbirth and related safety issues
Your baby may experience unnecessary stress if the water is either too hot or too chilly. Laboring women are urged to stay hydrated and comfortable while the temperature is kept around 98 degrees. If overheated, your baby's heart rate can increase. A quick heart rate needs to be carefully examined because it might potentially be a sign of infection or distress.

What happens if your kid is born underwater and then tries to breathe is another worry for you and your baby. We are aware that a healthy infant won't start breathing until they feel cool air on its mouth and nose and are not in distress. To prevent your baby from breathing, you must totally submerge your bottom and hips if you're giving birth in a bathtub. Air could touch your baby's mouth and he or she could inhale before the full birth is complete if your pelvis is partially submerged and partially exposed to water during the actual birth.
