Home Water Birth in Millburn NJ
Home water births works very similar to regular home births with the obvious distinction being a birthing tub. Entering the warm water will help the mother relax while endorphins are released to help with pain relief. Your baby will also have a gentle transition into the world (caught by either you, your spouse or myself) by flowing from the amniotic fluid into the birthing tub. At your 36 week appointment, I will bring one of three birthing tubs so it’s readily available when you go into labor.
