Imagine your baby entering the world in a calm, beautiful and safe environment, welcomed with warmth and the experienced hands of midwives. Where the sacredness of that moment is honored and respected, encouraging connection and bonding for a lifetime.
Water Birth is available to all clients at no extra cost. We monitor your baby with special waterproof dopplers while you relax in the comfort of the warm water. Our deep chromatherapy birth tubs are specifically designed for water immersion, promoting comfort and relaxation during labor and/or birth. Our midwives are experienced in safe water birth practices and have assisted many clients with water deliveries.
Benefits of Water Birth Include:
- Significant pain relief
- Promotes relaxation
- Decreases adrenalin production, allowing better flow of oxytocin and oxygen through the mother. This increases the blood supply to the mother’s uterus and produces more effective contractions.
- Greater blood supply to the uterus sends more blood and oxygen to the placenta and baby.
- Provides buoyancy enabling you to assume positions that are comfortable for labor/birth.
- Reduces blood pressure
- Reduces perineal trauma, eliminating episiotomies
- Provides a gentle transition for the baby from the womb into the world.
