Using water for birth is a common tool to help with the discomforts of labor. The water relaxes the muscles which allows better uterine oxygenation, bringing pain levels down. Being submerged in the water also helps bring the mother's anxiety and blood pressure down as well. Whether you are planning a homebirth in the water, or a hospital birth and would like to take it with you, or have the tub at home while you labor, you can find resources to rent the right birth tub for you!
