Introducing the ancient technique of water birth.

Water birth is a process wherein the mother labours in temperature-controlled water and thereafter delivers her baby within the water pool in the presence of medical professionals. Not only does the warm water feel nice during labour, but it also has a positive impact on the birthing experience as a whole. Since your baby has already been in the amniotic sac for nine months, birthing in a similar environment is gentler for the baby and less stressful for the mother The buoyancy in water enables a woman to move more easily than on land.Relaxing in a deep warm bath has many advantages. Firstly, it has a calming influence, helping the body to produce endorphins ( your own natural pain-killers) and reduces the production of stress hormones. It also frees the body from gravity, cushioning all parts of the body during contractions. Women’s experiences of water for labour and birth are generally positive in terms of feeling relaxed, involvement in decision making and feeling more in control.
