Studies show water birth during stage one doesn’t improve your or your baby’s medical outcome.

A warm bath might help you relax and help you feel more in control. Floating in water helps you move around more easily than in bed, too.

Some science suggests that the water may lower chances of severe va**nal tearing. And it may improve blood flow to the uterus. But study results about these points aren’t clear.

Things change during the second part of labor. That’s when your cervix is completely dilated and open and you start pushing until the baby is born.

Many doctors say there isn’t enough information to decide how safe or useful water birth is during this period.

Being out of the water for the second part of your labor makes it easier to move fast in case something goes wrong.

“If you have to do an emergency C-section, it would be foolhardy to risk an extra 4 or 5 minutes to move you out of the water,” says Caughey, chairman of the obstetrics and gynecology department at Oregon Health and Science University.

Water Birth Risks
Here are some of the rare problems that could happen while water birthing:

You or your baby could get an infection.
The umbilical cord could snap before your baby comes out of the water.
Your baby’s body temperature could be too high or too low.
Your baby could breathe in bath water.
Your baby could have seizures or not be able to breathe.

Are You a Good Water Birth Candidate?
Some factors may keep you out of the running for a water birth. You shouldn’t try it if:

You’re younger than 17 or older than 35.
You have complications like preeclampsia or diabetes.
You’re having twins or multiples.
The baby is in the breech position.
The baby is premature.
You’re having a really big baby.
You need to be constantly monitored and it can’t be done in the tub.
You have an infection.

I had my baby with natural birth... I didn't let them play with me or baby.
They do ask you whether you would like to make it as easy as possible for yourself? But still I meant the pain is worth your long term health afterwards.
And I wouldn't suggest water birth stall, natural as possible I say..
I would like to share some positions and ideas I tried when I had my baby..
1)lots of hot baths with 20min breaks.
2)the on your feet position, it is like you are sitting on your feet on the floor. This way the gravity will help the baby to come out easy and quick.
3) lay on the bed with your half upper body on your chest (avoiding your belly of course).
4) never push too hard and exhaust yourself because the nurse is telling you to push. ONLY PUSH WHEN YOU HAVE CRUMPS KIND OF PAIN AND FEEL LIKE YOUR BELLY (baby)IS MOVING DOWN itself.. This way it will be less painful and you won't rip your vi** na , at least not as much.!
Best of luck :) :-*
