What is a Water Birth?

Water birth is a technique of childbirth in which a labouring woman immerses her body in a tub of warm water to ensure a more comfortable and relaxing experience during childbirth.

The technique uses hydrotherapy to relieve labour pain and also enhances the circulation of blood in the body and increases the elasticity of the perineal tissues, reducing the risks of painful tears.

At Surya Hospital, we boast of water birthing procedures not only because it is beneficial for the mother, but also because it makes the whole experience more comforting for the baby.

Who is eligible for a Water Birth?

Water birthing is a wonderful technique that has been used all over the world for ages, however, it may not be an option for everyone. At Surya Hospital, we recommend the procedure only after making sure that you fit in the eligibility criteria. These include:

What happens during a Water Birth?

If this is your first time, we understand that you must be curious about how water birth works. Our experts will brief you about the procedure to help you understand what actually happens during it. You will be required to enter a large tub filled with warm water as soon as your labour starts or during the final stage when you feel that you are ready. We recommend the former as it will help you to relax and ease the pain. Our experts will closely monitor you throughout the process and offer assistance as per your requirements. You may occasionally need to change your position for better support.

How does the baby breathe under the water?

When a baby is developing inside the womb of the expectant mother, it gets the required nutrition and oxygen via the placentae and umbilical cords. During waterbirth, when the baby comes out, it continues to breathe via the same mechanism, until pulled out of the water., which stimulates their receptors and it starts breathing normally.
