The birth of a baby is probably the most natural and instinctive act women can do. Although giving birth to a baby is an amazing experience, it can be challenging for mothers to trust their instincts and develop their confidence.

When preparing for childbirth, in the early stages of pregnancy it is highly recommended to consider the variety of methods that are being practiced nowadays. Waterbirth is a method whereby the mother gives birth in a tub of warm or lukewarm water. You can also find the best water birth in Macedonia via

Water being comforting, relaxing, and soothing, is thought to encourage hormones that control stress. Giving birth in water can stimulate the mother's body to produce more pain-inhibiting hormones like endorphins that can assist in pain relief. 

Warm water also encourages more efficient blood flow to the heart and can reduce blood pressure. There is less likely to be a need for an episiotomy after birth and appears that there are fewer traumas to the perineum.

The baby will not drown because it will only start breathing once it is lifted out of the water. The umbilical cord continues to provide oxygen after birth.

Just like giving birth using traditional methods, water births must always be done with the supervision of licensed health care professionals. 

There are safe times to enter and exit the water and points to be considered and these should be understood and explained fully prior to your water birth.
