Benefits To Using A Birth Pool

Use of warm water during labor can reduce time in labor, increase comfort and result in fewer interventions. It has been shown that immersion in warm water that is deeper than the mother's abdomen is an extremely valuable relaxation tool. The following are some of the known benefits of a water labor and water birth:

  • Provides significant pain relief
  • Reduces the need for drugs and interventions
  • Reduces perineal trauma and eliminates episiotomies - encouraging an easier birth experience for mothers and a gentler welcome for babies
  • Reduces blood pressure, by promoting relaxation and conserving mother's energy levels
  • Can assist in speeding up labor
  • Water facilitates mobility and enables the mother to assume any position which is comfortable for labor and birth
  • Provides a feeling of control to the laboring mother
  • Water births create your best birth experience as you define it.
