My first child was a water birth at the King Edward Family Birth Centre & was a fantastic experience. I honestly couldn't imagine it going any more perfectly. I didn't have to have any form of drugs to help with the pain & I had no tearing nor needing stitches, etc. The midwives there were fantastic & was a complete hands off experience where I was able to let my body do the job it was meant to do.
I now live in Broome, currently pregnant with my second child & absolutely blown away & gutted that they don't offer water births here. I know it is being pushed to go ahead, so I thought I would share my past experience to hopefully help the progress along in a positive way. We as women who are already putting our bodies through so much change should have the choice to birth however we wish. It's our bodies so should be completely our decision. I also think that if this option was available it would eliminate a lot of home births giving mother & baby faster access to a doctor if something should unfortunately go wrong.
