I have been looking into tub birth, is it less painful than regular? any experience?
is tub birth safe? can anyone share a positive experience with natural tub births?
I had a home waterbirth with my daughter. It was a bit less painful to be honest but the hot water helped me to relax enough threw the contractions and the hot water took the edge off a bit. It does not make the pain go away but it helps make them tolerable
I tried the bath tub with my first son, in my experience it was awful. It so uncomfortable . You still have all the wires on and everything They make you sit a certain way and your belly is so huge and that tub is hard and makes the pain worse sitting like you have to in there. It was so uncomfortable I told them I didn't want to do it anymore and moved back to the bed. This was just my experience I hear some people enjoy it. If you are unsure, right before you give birth, go run a bubble bath and sit in it for 20-30 minutes.. If you start to get uncomfortable then water birth isn't for you.
