Firstly, congratulations on the new subforum.
Recently a friend posted a video about Water Birth on facebook.
I feel it is so amazed! Did a quick check on some facts, and get to know that:-
- Water birth is a positive experience
- It aids relaxation
- Reduces the need for pain relief
- Initial research suggests that it is just as safe for both mother and baby as labouring on land
Waterbirths are more common in country like UK & Canada, and have been widely accepted in mainstream medical circles for many years.
For Malaysia, waterbirths are still a novelty and only available in two hospitals, Island Hospital in Penang and Pantai Medical Centre in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur - both are private facilities.
I'd like to hear & get to expose more about water birth experience. Kindly do share.
Water Birth In Malaysia, Do share your experience.
