I had given up on the idea of having a water birth, because I'm stuck going to a hospital and the only one that allows it isn't covered by my insurance. Or so I thought. I recently discovered that another local hospital, in my system, allows water birth. They also have a great reputation for being natural birth friendly, and are mostly staffed by midwives. I have officially dumped my old, awful midwives and made an appointment at the new place. I don't get to see them for the first time until next week (the 14th) but I am hopeful. This really calms a lot of my fears about the birth (tearing, mostly), and I am happy to get away from the midwives who have been so awful to me so far.
Who else will be having a water baby?
