When you give birth in a birth pool filled with warm water, at least some of your labor and delivery may take place there as well. It might happen at home, in a hospital, or a birthing facility. You are assisted by a doctor, nurse-midwife, or midwife.
Some hospitals and birthing facilities in the United States allow water births. Birthing facilities provide a more comfortable environment than a hospital and more natural possibilities for expectant mothers. In the early stages of labor, using a birthing pool could:
- reduce discomfort
- preventing the need for anesthesia
I am passionate about changing the view of birth in America one mother at a time. BIRTH DOESN'T HAPPEN TO YOU, IT HAPPENS THROUGH YOU. I aim to EDUCATE, EMPOWER and ELEVATE as you prepare for the birth of your dreams. You will learn about how your body and baby work together to bring your baby into your arms. I will guide you to become empowered to use your voice to make informed choices about your body and baby. I will lift you up, encourage you and be a constant presence during this transformational experience in your life.
