Our Services Include
Laboring in Water: a Gentle Alternative Most people are comforted by water, and soaking in a tub of warm water to ease labor sounds inviting to most women. In water, a woman is free from gravity’s pull on her body, a stress reliever that, in turn, will help a mother to relax. Being more relaxed both physically and mentally allows for the production of pain inhibitors, called endorphins, that compliment labor. For women who find water soothing, they may also want to give birth in the water. The ease of the mother giving birth to her baby born into water provides a gentle welcome to a newborn.
