Water birth for labor and delivery
A water birth can help make you and your baby more comfortable during labor. When assisted by a certified nurse midwife who’s trained in this technique, water birth can be a safe and relaxing option. Delivery in water may reduce the need for pain medication, and make it easier for you to change positions during labor. Water birth also decreases adrenaline production, which may lead to a shorter labor. Babies will also have a smoother transition into an air environment. Women who are having their first child (with no apparent risk factors), or who have had a previous low-risk pregnancy, may be good candidates for a water birth.
Hypnobirthing helps to promote a natural and less-stressful birthing experience. At Ascension NE Wisconsin - Mercy, we offer classes that train you to relax quickly and effectively during labor. Hypnobirthing can also help the body to manage pain and reduce anxiety. Relaxation techniques include controlled breathing, meditation, visualization and more. This class is beneficial for both mom and baby, for during and after delivery.
