A friend of mine has had two previous waterbirths, both in Oregon. She is planning baby #3 and would like to water birth again. Every where she has checked says she can labor in the water but must get out for the actual birth. DOes anybody know somehwere in the DC metro area where they allow waterbirths?

Does she do hospital or home? She does not want to do home for a variety of reasons that I am not going to go into - mostly because I don't know them.

My friend actually is in WV..... is there anybody there that does waterbirth?

Kathy Slone delivers at mercy Hospital ( at least thats where she used too) She's wonderful and in private practice. She does some homebirths...but only for non-first time HB mamas.
