Whether you choose to birth your baby in the birth tub or just labor, you can have confidence that the water in labor will be calming, relaxing and will help your contractions be more effective. Submerging yourself in a tub can reduce your blood pressure, and reduce stress and anxiety. These are all beneficial to your baby taking into consideration mom and baby are both healthy to begin with and no complications exist. So go ahead, relax and enjoy your labor!
setting the mood for birth, so beautiful, probably not what my setup will be. i prefer the haphazard set up with target bags and a puke bowl instead of beautiful decorations. at least, i must, because thats how it always ends up!
"Every now and then, birth happens so quickly there is no time for a birth tub! In this case, mama knew she needed water, so she gave birth in her bathtub. I photographed it from inside the shower stall!"
