The water birth was spearheaded by Dr. Smita Vaid, Senior Consultant Obstetrics and Gynaecology well supported by Dr. Satyen K Hemrajani, Senior Consultant Neonatology with their specialised La Femme team on 9th March 2017. The patient opted for non-pharmacological method of pain relief post lot of discussion and contemplation with her doctor and decided to go in the pool of warm water. Labor progressed naturally while the patient was comfortable in the pool and finally delivered in a calm environment under water without an Episiotomy. The stay of the patient was comfortable throughout and she didn’t take any antibiotics during the course of her treatment. There are multiple benefits of water birth like buoyancy effect for an easy and composed delivery, pain relief and no additional dosage of medicines.
