The Waterbirth Vessel Offers A Comfortable Birthing Place For Moms

by in Labour and Delivery, pregnancy, Water Birth

We have done many articles about the benefits of water births. At present, water birth is often practiced by those who choose to have a home birth, because the majority of hospitals have not yet installed proper birth pools in their maternity wards.

The Waterbirth Vessel is designed to offer moms-to-be every convenience to make childbirth easier.

The ‘vessel’ supports and encourages any position that woman can apply to manage their labor.

All I want to know is how do I get this vessel into the labor suite I’ll be delivering at the end of this year?

Here are some of the benefits to having a water birth:

  • Relaxation for the mother
  • Pain Management- less or no need for medical intervention
  • Water creates support and equal pressure on all parts of a woman’s body
  • Less energy used when birthing in water, less pain, less anxiety for mother and baby
  • Water birth seems to result in lower adrenalin (fight or flight response) levels resulting in better oxytocin and oxygen flow to the mother, increased blood supply to the uterus. As a result contractions are more efficient
  • An improved blood supply to the placenta during water birth also improves the unborn baby’s oxygen levels
  • Water results in a small decrease in the mothers blood pressure
  • The mother can find a comfortable position more efficiently and ease the descent of the baby through the birth canal
  • Birth from water into water is a gentle transition for the baby
  • There is less risk of tearing and skin tissue trauma to mother and less risk of tissue trauma to baby
  • Water can make pushing easier
  • The buoyancy of water means the baby does not have to be turned or twisted to deliver the shoulders in most cases
  • Birthing in the water provides the baby with almost the exact replica of the womb environment- wet, warm, weightless and gentle
  • Cleanup of a water birth can be very easy with little mess
  • The mother feels less pressure on the abdomen and uterus with contractions
