Q.

Giving Birth in Water

Hi there,

I am not sure if I am asking it the right way. But I heard people say that giving birth in water is less painfull then normal birth in the hospital. I do want to give natural birth. What is the reason behind women giving birth in water, is it much safer?

I am not pregnant and I am not planning on having a baby anytime soon, but in future I would like to prepared as much as I can.

Thank you
