This will be my third water birth, and I am getting really excited. I've always used the "fishy" kiddie pool with my other births, but this time I'm using the Birth Pool in a Box. My friend is lending me the one she used at her birth, so I just have to buy a liner.
I just love laboring and birthing in water. My oldest daughter (4-years-old) wants to be in the water with me. I told her she can if I'm feeling OK with it at that time. My son (6-years-old) is used to watching me birth in water by now after his two sister's births. My youngest (2-years-old) will probably just want to be held by daddy. I always get a slight concern that the young one will want to dive in, but they've not done it yet. (Even if they did, we'd figure it out.)
I really do look forward to birth, and, for me, I attribute that to the water.
