I'm birthing in the hospital and the laboring rooms don't have showers. : I had planned on taking a shower when it got intense and staying in there a long time where I couldn't be bugged. Well, now that I know they don't have a shower I am wondering if I shouldn't request a water birth instead. I'm not assuming I would want to push in the water, but I couldn't really mention that because they don't want to set up the tub for just water labor..... I want them to have a good view of my perinium when pushing because I had a 4th degree tear and I want the midwife to guide me through to prevent tearing as much as possible. Should I request a labor tub? Thoughts?
