Water Babies

Water birth is one of the natural birthing options available to women across the globe and is gaining popularity in India now.

The most compelling reason to choose natural childbirth is innate natural wisdom. Women know how to give birth without machines, epidurals and fear. The question isn’t why natural childbirth but, “Why not?”

Support in water is one of the most beneficial things that can be offered to a woman in labour. The water provides a calming influence and a peaceful relaxed atmosphere. Women report that they enjoy their labour and find that the water allows complete freedom of movement and deep concentration.

Some of the benefits of the procedure are:

*
Facilitates mobility and enables the mother to assume any position that is comfortable for labour and birth

* Speeds up labour

* Reduces blood pressure

* Provides significant pain relief

* Promotes relaxation

* Conserves her energy

* Reduces the need for drugs and interventions

* Gives mother a private protected space

* Reduces perineal trauma and eliminates episiotomies

* Reduces Caesarean section rates

* Is highly rated by mothers - typically stating they would consider giving birth in water again

* Is highly rated by experienced providers

* Encourages an easier birth for mother and a gentler welcome for baby

Placing a pool of water in a birth room changes the atmosphere immediately. Voices get softer, the mother stays calmer and everyone becomes less stressed.

The effect of buoyancy that deep water immersion creates allows spontaneous movement of the mother. No one has to help the mother get into a new position. She moves as her body and the position of the baby dictate. Movement helps open the pelvis, allowing the baby to descend. When a woman in labour relaxes in a warm deep bath, free from gravity’s pull on her body, with sensory stimulation reduced, her body is less likely to secrete stress-related hormones. This allows her body to produce the pain inhibitors-endorphins that complement labour. Noradrenaline and catecholamines, the hormones that are released during stress, actually raise the blood pressure and can inhibit or slow labour. A labouring woman who is able to relax physically, is able to relax mentally as well. Many women, midwives, and doctors acknowledge the analgesic effect of water.

Thousands of these mothers state they would never be able to consider labouring without water again. Waterbirth profoundly demonstrates that a woman is empowered by “giving birth” not “being delivered”. Water has many advantages for the labouring mom. It provides relaxation, buoyancy and support, ease of mobility, sense of calm, soothing warmth and a sense of privacy. Water provides a gentle medium of transition from the womb to the world for the baby.
