I had one the second time around I was only allowed it after i had my iron transfusion at 37 weeks, i didnt request it as such but the pools were free when i was there and it was offered to me, so i took it
I did and liked it. I have nothing to compare it to, but I believe the water helped to keep me more calm and relaxed which in turn made the pain not as bad. I plan to do a water birth again for any future births.
I had one! It was lovely, the water was warm & relaxing and even though the pain was still noticeable, it was much less pressure on me than it was on a bed (when I had to be checked for full dilation).
