I am not sure how many of you, my dear readers, have delivered a baby in a pool, but I want to share with you my enthusiasm for water birth. I know for a fact that the birth center where I am planning to have a baby has several pools. I also know for a fact that I am going to get into one without problems if I request it. It already gives me the peace of mind knowing that I am going to enjoy my birth a lot more. I’ve read some amazing stories written by women who experienced giving birth in a pool full of warm, relaxing and soothing water, and I can tell you that I am very hyped and pumped. I am so glad that I have such a great birth center within just a mile from where I live. Even getting there should be a piece of cake, not to mention that I already participate in a tour that allowed me to make myself familiar with it.
I have to admit that I never really thought about the possibility to have a water birth until my midwife told me about all those pools they have in the center. Hooked by the idea, I immediately started reading about water birth on the Internet (like I always do every time I need to research something that I find interesting), and I was hyped for it from the start. Maybe my birth will not be as painful after all.
