In May of this year (almost exactly eight years after my first son was delivered via c-section) I had the amazing opportunity of having a home water birth! I went into labour at one o'clock in the morning on May 9th of 2014 and had my third son at 7:46 am. It was the most wonderful experience. I filled a two foot tall inflatable swimming pool up with warm water and relaxed and floated in between contractions. I had the assistance of a certified midwife and the water temperature was checked throughout my time in the tub (it can't be too warm or too cold). It was very empowering to go from a cesarean, to a natural labour, to finally my dream child birthing experience.
