    I was thinking about having a waterbirth (im 25wks now)but i dont really know much about them. I was wondering if anybody has had one and what it was like for them, or just had any info on them.
    Thanks.

    Well I didn’t have one, but I know some hospitals (I think maybe even some public ones) do it. I would ask around in the clinic maybe, although I think SA only has private midwives who would do it.
    I know they are apparently better for the baby, and less painful for you too because apparently the bouyancy of the water eases the stress on your body ….I’d tell your practitioner ASAP because I think it needs to be arranged prior if you want a water birth.
    Good luck with everything!

    I have already discussed it with my midwife. Im having the baby at a birth centre, so im allowed a waterbirth if i want one.
