For the mother too, being in water during labor reduces labor pains substantially, as water has a therapeutic effect on her. At our Natural Birth Center, The Sanctum™, mothers who labor in water, are more calm, and serene. Pushing is less painful in warm water, as the perineal tissues stretch more easily, without giving pain. Such a birth is gentle both on the mother and on the baby.
Our midwives and staff are experts in helping mothers use waterbirth. Our first waterbirth at The SanctumTM was in 2009 and since then we have helped many mothers and babies to experience gentle birth under water.
