Hydrotherapy Benefits for Labor and Birth
Birthing Mothers expressed a feeling of weightlessness which aids in more comfort and easier mobility. In addition pressure on Mothers abdomen is reduced resulting in deeper relaxation which in turn lends to the release of hormones helping progress labor faster, rhythmically, and efficiently. By relaxing the pelvic floor this helps birthing Mother to feel more in control of her body.
Benefits for Birthing Mom and Baby
Minimization of overall pain which reduces the need for medication. Tubs allow for a much quieter environment and increased privacy so the Mother feels less inhibited. Labor in a tub often stimulates a dysfunctional labor helping the Mother to progress more rapidly to second stage. Overall encourages a smoother and easier delivery and a much gentler transition for Baby.

Reserve Your Tub for Home or Hospital Birth
We have several Tubs available but you must reserve in advance and arrange pick up and return. The tub and accessories fit in the back seat or hatch of a standard car or SUV. Typically we allow birthing couples to pick up the tub several weeks before their estimated due date. However that is subject to availability. Call Rosemarie today to inquire if one is available for you.
