Have you ever witnessed a waterbirth? I was the midwife at six waterbirths this year alone. I had two women completely immerse themselves in water. One had seen the Russian waterbirth tape, the other had not. I have found that women need water when they are in labor. Women are drawn to it. Most women want to take a shower, soak in a tub while laboring, or give birth in water. Don't settle for putting your feet into hospital stirrups-----put your feet into hot water instead!
