Benefits of water for labour and/or birth

Greater comfort & mobility
The mother has increased freedom to move spontaneously and change positions to promote the descent of the baby.

Reduced pressure on the abdomen
Buoyancy promotes more efficient contractions and improves blood circulation, resulting in more oxygen to the uterus and baby, and less pain for the mother. Many labouring women do not request addional pain management options.

Water stimulates touch and temperature nerve fibers in the skin. This helps block impulses from pain nerve fibers, known as the Gate Theory of Pain.

Helps mother conserve her energy
Immersion in water reduces the opposition of gravity; the mother’s weight is supported, which allows her to cope more effectively with contractions.

Promotes deep relaxation
As women relax deeply in water, labour may progress quickly and efficiently. Water helps women let go and focus inward as labour progresses.

Lowers blood pressure
When high blood pressure is caused by anxiety, immersion in water can promote relaxation and a change of consciousness, resulting in acceptable blood pressure.

Easier breathing
Moisture in the air makes facilitates easy breathing, of particular concern for women with asthma.

Facilitates the second stage of labour
Many women are less inhibited in water. Warm water relaxes the pelvic floor muscles, leading to decreased perineal tearing.

Empowerment of the mother
When a woman delivers her baby while remaining awake, aware and in control, her birth experience is enhanced and can become a source of great personal strength and pride that enriches her life forever.

Better parent-child interactions
Mothers who have had empowering birth experiences are more likely to bond easily with their babies. Babies who have had gentle and non-traumatic births also have enhanced positive associations with their mothers. An exceptionally positive start to the mother-baby relationship can enhance their interactions forever.

Evolving humanity in a positive direction
Many psychologists believe that babies born gently grow up to become more gentle adults, and have a greater ability to deal with conflict non-violently.
