Waterbirth of Kansas City
Experience the peace and calm of waterbirth.
Immersion in water for labor and birth has been around for over 200 years, and research proves its safety and efficacy for natural, undisturbed birth. Providing relaxation, significant pain relief, lower cesarean rates, lowered blood pressure, less perineal trauma, and a gentler welcome for baby, waterbirth is associated with a decreased need for intervention and pain medication as well as higher APGAR scores for newborns.
YOU CAN HAVE THE BIRTH YOU WANT
"Women increasingly are seeking settings for birth that honor their ability to give birth without intervention. Water birth increases their chances of
attaining the goal of a natural birth without intervention."
