I just wanted to say that the hospital where I have chosen to have the baby is lucky enough to have a birthing pool, and my partner and I attended a waterbirth parentcraft class last night to see what it was all about. If your hospital does such a thing, I can definitely recommend it. The midwifes were amazing, and the room with the birthing pool was lovely. It's made me far more relaxed about having the baby (even at this early stage!) and I have got my heart set on this being a water baby!
