We gave birth to our second baby at King Edward Memorial Hospital earlier this year. We wanted to have a water birth like for our firstborn but were surprised to discover that the State's premier birthing hospital doesn't have water birth facilities.
We hired a birthing pool at considerable expense to ourselves but unfortunately, after the time it took to retrieve the pool, and inflate it we weren't able to fill it in time for the birth.
While overall it was a positive experience, and the midwifery team were great, I feel the lack of access to adequate birthing pools should be addressed.
