Having a homebirth?
How can a pool be helpful in labor?
These pools are larger than most NYC tubs. It allows for the laboring person to immerse themselves into water and use as hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy is commonly used as a comfort measure for other clinical specialties as well. There is evidence to show that water immersion during labor can be effective for pain relief as well as reducing anxiety.
