Home Water Birth in Colts Neck NJ
For mothers interested in a home water birth in Colts Neck, this is also an option. Home water births are physically easier, allowing the perineum to soften making it easier to deliver without tearing. Since the warm water relaxes the mother, it allows the body to produce natural hormones called endorphins to help with the pain. If home water birth is chosen, I will bring a birthing tub to the in-home 36 week checkup. Visit our page on home water birth in Colts Neck, NJ for more details.
