Birth is incredible. Birth in the water is amazing.
What is waterbirth about? After all, we are not whales (although sometimes pregnant women feel like whales). We are land creatures. And birth is a wild and crazy business wherever it happens, on a bed, beside a bed, in a closet, on the toilet, standing in the kitchen. But a lot of women love giving birth the water.
There are women who find it too hot or constricting or just not quite right, but for many women, the water is great. Babies emerge from the water blinking and beautiful into the arms of there mothers who have been able to surrender to the power of the experience. The water helped the surrender to happen.
