The water birth method, which is widely used in European and American countries, is preferred by more and more expectant mothers in our country. Water birth, as the name suggests, is a type of birth performed in a pool of water. The application takes place inside bathtubs, bell jars and pool-like structures filled with water at 37 degrees. Hot water helps the mother-to-be relax and relax her muscles. In this way, complications that may occur during childbirth are prevented.

Water birth is performed in 3 different ways. The first of these is that the expectant mother spends time in a pool full of hot water before giving birth. The expectant mother relaxes in the water and then gives birth naturally in bed. Another method is for the expectant mother to take a shower before giving birth. In this method, it is aimed to make the birth easier by taking advantage of the relaxing effect of water. The third method is for the mother to give birth in a bathtub filled with water. The expectant mother enters the pool and the birth takes place in the water. The first encounter between mother and baby is also in the pool.
