I had a waterbirth planned all along. I was hoping to be in there and then get to 10cm but my hospital sent me home so many times when i was in constant agonizing contractions but only at 2cm.. i couldnt understand why they were barely 1 minute apart and excruciating.. i got sent home - when i got home 1 hour later i was bleeding a little and at 10cm with an insanely strong urge to push.. so i did. i went to hospital in an ambulance and finally got my gas and air. my water sack was on its way out in the ambulance and i pushed it out more like a balloon on the hospital bed so they popped it for me. i was waiting for the pool to fill. baby was crowning and the pool was done so i waddled over to it and me and my partner got in together. i just squat and leaned forward best position i think baby was born about 10-20 minutes later the contrActions stopped hurting when i gott in the pool it was a relief the pushing just burned and fet like i was tearing inside which i did but it wasnt that bad it was lovely for the painful contractions to fnally stop. I brought her up between my legs and then it was the most amazing moment of my life. i would have one again.
i was never fussed about water births until watching one born every minute and then i was curious. i am pregnant with my second child so will make sure i mention it to my mw after reading all the positive comments from other mums *** alt="" src="http://my.bounty.com/smiley/msn/teeth_smile.gif" />
