Waterbirth for delivering your child

One of the options on having babies that women have but is not that popular is waterbirthing. This is the delivery where an expectant mother is placed in a tub filled with water.And that will be the place where she will deliver the baby. There are many benefits to this method.More women are now considering this method even if it is not a commonly known and popular method of delivering babies.In this article, we are going to talk about the benefits that mothers and babies can get from using this method.

First of all having a baby in water is very beneficial to the woman and the baby. As a San Diego midwife I have seen it firsthand.For the mother, it soothes the labor pains.  It allows the muscles to relax more.This will result to a quicker delivery of the baby ad less pain for the mother.

Another benefit that people will get fro this method is that there is no drugs used because it already soothes the muscles of the mother and it also eases the pain of delivery.  A lot of times the waterbirth allows the woman to have the baby naturally. I have seen it a lot of times while having a waterbirth in San Diego.  Women who usually had to use drugs to ease the pain of delivery don’t have to.The relaxation of the muscles and the quick delivery that it results to allows them to withstand the pain. This will be good for motheres who do not want drugs used during the delivery of their babies.This is because they have the fear that drugs used during the delivery will be harmful to the baby’s health.

And these are the benefits for the babies. For nine months, the baby has lived in an environmnet filled with water.By delivering babies through water birth reduces the shock that they experience when they are being delivered.The baby will experience less shock since it will also be going straight into water.  Going through delivery is stressful enough to the baby.Removing some of that shock will be a big help.  And these waterbirths can be performed by most midwives San Diego.They know how to perform this type of delivery.And as shown it brings a lot of benefits for the mother and the baby as well.
