I am due to birth my first child in a few months and will be attending the Broome Hospital to do so.
I've seen the birthing suites in the hospital and was quite saddened to be informed that in this day and age we still don't have the facilities for a safe and comfortable water birth. Giving birth in the water is something I've always felt I wanted to do as the water calms and soothes me and I believe is a fabulous form of pain relief.
The Broome hospital does have baths available but only to labour in which in my opinion, is so very disappointing. They are not set up for a safe and comfortable water birthing experience.
I really hope with the up and coming revamp of the maternity ward, they take into consideration that I believe, so many of us mothers-to-be would love the option to labour and birth in the water comfortably and safely.
I am still very much looking forward to my time at Broome hospital. My midwife Jo is amazing and Ruth my obstetrician is an angel, I know I'm in great hands.
