WHAT IS WATER BIRTHING?

A water birth means that either some or all of your labor takes place in a warm bath or pool. Some hospitals offer this option, but many in Las Vegas do not. A water birth can help relax the body and offer a sense of weightlessness that can be soothing while in labor. 

  • Shortening the length of your labor

  • Experiencing less pain

  • Preventing the need for anesthesia

SOME OTHER THINGS YOU CAN EXPECT ARE:

There are birth tub rental services that your midwife can suggest. Once your tub is initially set up, your birthing team can help regulate your water temperatures while you are in labor. Rentals typically include the assembly and breakdown of the pool, allowing you and your baby to relax after the birth.

"PEOPLE NEVER SING...except in the bathroom. Birthing women also make their natural sounds next to running bathwater. There is something about the power of water. People are drawn to water, spas, and sacred streams. Women in labor are drawn to water, too.”

- Michel Odent, MD.
