My Birth Story ������ Even before I was pregnant I knew I would have a water birth! I wanted the birth of my baby to be as gentle as possible and without any drugs, I hated the idea of having to deal with the side effects of all the medication they would give me at the hospital. I imagined a calm and soothing environment, where I could wait for my baby to arrive, surrounded only by the people that made me feel good and excited about that moment. I was lucky enough to have had all that! I had my baby in a warm water pool, my husband, my mother, my doctor and my doula were there with me. I prepared myself for that day, I worked out regularly, I ate a very well balanced diet, I meditated and visualised every single detail. I wanted to deliver my baby on a Saturday, I wanted the labour to be no longer than 4 hours, I wanted to deliver my baby in the pool, and I wanted to do it drug free! I got all of that! I also asked for it to be pain free �� but that wasn’t really what happened!! Saying that, I feel like a super hero, kind of invincible, now I feel like I can do anything .. it was important to me to be fully in control, awake, for the arrival of my baby. I wanted nature to do its job! It was magical, I had to idea I was so strong, I felt everything with so much intensity, her descent, the contractions.. that as soon as it was over, the only thing I could feel was love and pure happiness! The pain vanished, I recovered in minutes, and I was able to enjoy her from the very first minute! She was awake and alert! Calm and beautiful! She is my everything, thank you @alfromscotland for giving me the best gift one could ever ask for. ❤️ #forisabellatoread #waterbirth #hypnobirthing #womenpower
Waterbirth means giving birth to a child in the water. In this, lukewarm water is poured in a large tub where the pregnant lady can sit comfortably. This process can be done both in the hospital and at home. This technique undoubtedly reduces the labour pain. However, it should be done with great caution. Otherwise, it may affect the health of the child.
Benefits of Water Birthing
Following are some of the health benefits of water birthing, making it a much-popular choice among women:
- The pain is much-lesser in water birth than compared to the regular delivery methodology.
- No need to induce labour pains in water birth. The delivery can happen in much lesser time and lesser pain as well. Hot water in the tub is also a pain reliever, which allows pain to reduce at the time of the delivery.
- There is no need to take any medicines while giving water birth. Hot water relaxes the muscles and increases oxytocin, which helps the body to relieve pain naturally. This also makes delivery very quick.
However, one should be extremely careful while giving birth in the water. There are chances that the infant might catch hold of any infection. In cases, there are also chances for the umbilical cord to break during the procedure, which can be harmful to the baby’s health. By giving birth in water, many times, the body temperature of the baby is in extremes. There can also be chances of the baby having difficulties in breathing. So while adopting this process of delivery at home, have assistance around during the delivery.
