Birth story in pictures
Really considering a water birth for baby #2. Had my first at home and it was great but I tore bad and heard water can take some of the pressure off and make it more gentle to prevent future tearing.
@Talina, Talina, I was sure I had responded to you, but can’t find my response now! Yes! water definitely helps relieve the pressure and drastically reduces the chances of tearing too. I would strongly recommend joining the yahoo homebirth group (unassisted childbirth) even if you’re planning a hospital waterbirth, as the women there have immense and incredibly experience with which they can honestly strengthen and prepare you.
All the best!
Very inspirational story for those with “slow progress”. I was Amy’s (DoulaMomma) doula and found your story through the link on her blog.
That was such a beautiful video, you had me in tears. Wonderful.

@Jane @OnlineMum, Thank you so much Jane! It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to do it again one day! 🙂
I’ve always thought that a water birth makes sense. If I’m ever fortunate enough to have a child.
Visiting from SITS. Hope you had a wonderful holiday with your new little one!
@Karen, Hi Karen, just saw your comment here for the first time! I hope you do get the chance for a water birth. It’s an amazing experience! Thanks so much for leaving your comment!
