About Water-Birth at BID Plymouth

Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Plymouth OB/GYN & Midwifery is committed to providing all available, safe options for pain management in labor, including water-birth. Many women benefit from the relaxation and freedom of movement offered by our birthing tub.

Water-birth is currently offered to low-risk women who meet certain criteria. Women considering water-birth 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 water-birth.
