It dropped the pain factor by half and was a more manageable mess. (All I really had to do was dry off) - and the babies loved the water too I think. I am definitely doing it for my third.

The water offered a lot of pain relief for me. I refused to get out, even when my midwife offered to get rid of a cervical lip so I could push. I'm definitely going to plan another water birth for my next one.
