Hey everyone! I don't know if this is still common today but I'm actually a water baby (ie. I was birthed under water). I'm wondering if folks are stilling doing this today and whether there are some obvious benefits to the unconventional method? Would love to hear from other water birthing mommas!

That's an interesting question. I used to hear about water births a lot before and I feel like I don't hear about it as often anymore. I researched it a little and it seems like there are benefits of a water birth in the first stage of delivery but not in the actual delivery. If it shortens the duration of labor - i'm all for it!
