We provide two birthing pools to couples who are followed by Zwanger in Brussel and wish to give birth at home.
Advantages of a water birth
It is easier to relax in warm water, which maker it easier for you to handle the contractions and the opening of the cervix usually goes faster. You feel lighter and can easily move around in the water, so you will help your baby to move down in your pelvis. Also the water makes your skin and tissues more soft and relaxed, which makes tearing less frequent.

The birthing pool is rented for 50 Euros, including a liner and a hose. You will receive a bill.
