The Birth Cottage is happy to offer the option of water birth to clients in both the birth center and for home births! Spacious birthing tubs are available in each of our birthing rooms. For our homebirth clients, we have portable AquaDoula birth pools available to rent.
Laboring in water can promote relaxation and provide significant pain relief for many women. Some women labor in the water, and many stay in through pushing and birth their babies underwater. We observe that babies born in water are often quiet and alert immediately following the birth.
