Waterbirth

The providers of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital Plymouth Ob/Gyn and Midwifery are committed to providing all available, safe options for pain management in labor. Many women benefit from the relaxation and freedom of movement offered by our birthing tub.

Waterbirth is currently offered to low risk women who meet certain criteria. Women considering waterbirth are asked to speak with their provider early in the pregnancy to allow for appropriate consent. Sometimes unforeseen events in labor, such as concern over the pattern of the baby’s heartbeat, result in exclusion from waterbirth.
