The WebMD defines water birthing as part of your labor, delivery, or both happen while you’re in a birth pool filled with warm water. It can take place in a hospital, a birthing center, or at home. A doctor, nurse-midwife, or midwife helps you through it.
By most cases, the process of giving birth usually done at hospital which associated with common labor pains and operative delivery or cesarean surgery but in the U.S., according to WebMD “Some birthing centers and hospitals offer water births. Birthing centers are medical facilities that offer a more homelike setting than a hospital and more natural options for women having babies. The use of a birthing pool during the first stage of labor might help ease pain, keep you from needing anesthesia and speed up your labor.”
Then WebMD shows that their statements they published are proven like the situation of Audra Lynn from California who’s delivering her second water birthing which was filmed by her attending midwife Lisa Marie Sanchez Oxenham. In the video Audra is focusing on her breathing while setting a mirror underneath her, and a few second later we could see her in a bit of pain then a split second after comes her baby boy. Oxenham uploaded the emotional birthing video on Youtube and earned over 1 million of views.
