Why Water?  

Some of the benefits of laboring in the water include:

  • Reduced pain
  • Reduced sensory stimulus, thus producing less stress-related hormones
  • Decreased blood pressure 
  • Increased ability to focus 
  • Increased skin elasticity, easing the strain on the perenium
  • Helps dilate the cervix
  • Gentler birth for baby

Most of our clients choose to labor in the tub and/or shower for at least some of the time, and about 1 in 4 give birth in the water. 

Each of our birth rooms feature walk-in showers and 2 of our 3 birth rooms feature large tubs.
