Water has been used for centuries to ease and comfort mothers during labor and birth and give newborns a gentle start in life. Three Rivers Birth Services is pleased to offer AquaDoula heated birth tubs for use in home and hospital births throughout South Carolina. Rental includes a disposable liner and a pump for draining the tub.
Waterbirth at Home
Because of the immense benefits of waterbirth, Three Rivers Birth Services' midwife Nicole Lavallee encourages the use of birth tubs for homebirths. While not all mothers who have a tub set up for use during labor will choose to remain in the water for the actual birth, most find that their labor is eased and relaxation greatly facilitated through use of the tub. Labor also tends to progress more rapidly, sometimes at a truly amazing rate.
