    So I'm hoping for a water birth at the hospital, I've already packed one towel for when I have a shower after, but I just thought suddenly this morning will I need a towel for when I get out the pool? I don't want to get my towel for my nice fresh shower all covered in blood etc. Has anyone else had a water birth? How did you get dry xx

    I'm taking two towels; one really old one that I don't mind getting ruined and one semi-nice one to snuggle into after a shower!

    I'm sure the hospital will have towels - you may be in and out of the pool a few times to be honest and you'll want a nice clean towel for afterwards and the next day if you stay in overnight.

    Your own towels are so much nicer than theirs and BIGGER!

    They have loads of towels so I wouldn't bring any for the actual birth or the 1st shower, I would just use theirs until the bleeding settles.
