Some moms like giving birth without anything to help with the pain, while others would rather have something to manage the pain to make the birthing process much easier for them.

If you find a midwife that will allow you to have your baby at home, you may want to ask if a water birth is possible for you to do.

You will have to rent a birthing pool yourself and it is best you rent a pool way before your expected due date. This way if you go in labor a week or so before your due date, you will already be prepared and have your pool for the birthing process. If you like, you can even have your mate in the birthing pool while you have your baby. Plus you will be able to stay warm because the pool has built in heaters to maintain a proper temperature. Having a water birth is a great way to go about giving birth because it comforts the expecting mother.
