Waterbirth, and its cousin hydrotherapy for labour appeal to a growing number of American women as part of their plans for labour pain relief. There are several trends driving this, including: (a) The increasing assertion of women’s rights (b) A desire to limit medical interventions in the birth process (c) The normalisation of waterbirths through TV and social media exposure. Hospitals are responding by adding birthing pools to their L&D (labour & delivery) rooms.

This gives them a competitive marketing edge, as they can offer women a safe and additional option over how they experience labour and give birth. This is important, as a choice over labour pain relief is often a deciding factor when women are selecting a hospital. Many hospitals are offering hydrotherapy for labour only, with the mother getting out of the pool before giving birth.

This keeps their practices within the position statements of ACOG (American College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists), which considers that there may be benefits associated with immersion in water during the first stage of labour, but recommends that the actual birth takes place on land.
