Water birth

Labour in water has long been used as a method of pain relief. Delivery underwater has increased in popularity in the last decade, and we have pools at the White Horse Birth Centre and in the Delivery Suite at the Great Western Hospital.

What to do if you would like the pool

Discuss with your Midwife who will assess your suitability for a water birth.

What to bring
You may wear a loose T-shirt if you wish.
