A birth pool is an amazing tool for labour, water just feels good, babies like the water too, after all they are floating in our womb and have been for several weeks. It only makes sense that they would enjoy the warm water of a birth pool. Mom in the pool has a chance to relax a little bit and let her body float. I would say staying in the pool for about 30 minutes or so, getting out move around for another 30 minutes and get back in again, you may decide not to birth in the pool, that’s totally fine, if you that is fine too, and often times allows mom to catch her baby all on her own, a very special gift for anyone.
Here at Birth Baby and Beyond we rent these amazing birth pools and so many babies have joined us earth side in a birth pool.
