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.
