Our team of specialists will help guide you with deep relaxation and breathing techniques, playing the music of your choice and aromatherapy together with lots of hugs! Guiding you to bring your baby into the World with Love. Immediately following birth, placing your newborn into your arms with all initial assessments done together and a family. Research shows that when babies are skin to skin, they have much lower stress levels and start off much better with breast feeding.
Waterbirth – Some Benefits for Mother
Warm water is very soothing, comforting and relaxing.
In the later stages of labor, the water has been shown to increase a woman’s energy. The effect of buoyancy lessens a mother’s body weight, allowing free movement and new positioning. Buoyancy promotes more efficient uterine surges with improved blood circulation resulting in better oxygenation of the uterine muscles, less discomfort for the mother, and more oxygen for the baby.
Immersion in water often helps to lower high blood pressure caused by normal anxiety. Since the water provides a greater sense of privacy, it can reduce inhibitions, anxiety, and fears.
Gravity Birth™ Allows mother to literally hang and move with the support of long aerial silks, working together with the body and baby.
Water for Baby provides an environment similar to the womb. Water eases the stress of the birth for both mother and baby thus increasing reassurance and sense of security.
