Water Birth Suite

Welcome to the Water Birth Suite

Giving birth is a natural part of life and we want your birth story to be memorable and the story you want it to be.

Water birth is a popular alternative for women who prefer natural childbirth. Laboring in warm water can feel calming, relieve pain, and reduce the risk of tearing during birth. 

The Water Birth Suite features a large tub that gives freedom of movement, allowing you to get into positions that feel comfortable throughout your labor. 

When baby arrives, there’s a gentle transition onto your chest for skin-to-skin contact and bonding.

The Water Birth Suite has everything you need to labor and deliver in warm, soothing water.

If your goal is a birth with minimal intervention, while having all the resources of a hospital if needed, we’ve got you covered. Women’s Health and The Birth Center are proud to offer natural childbirth options that you and baby will love.

Water Birth Tub

The large, luxurious tub gives freedom of movement, allowing you to get into positions that feel comfortable throughout your labor.

The tub is accessible from three sides, so it’s easy to monitor and offer support during labor. Built-in seats at various heights let you get into different positions and your support person can sit on a ledge alongside you.

Multi-colored LED lighting adds to the calm setting.

Room Amenities

We designed the space with feedback from new moms including thoughtful touches like:

  • Large windows with calming nature views
  • Natural birth aids such as squat bar, birth/labor sling, birthing chairs, birthing ball, peanut ball, yoga blocks, beanbag chair and aromatherapy
  • Variety of seating including rocker, recliner, couch
  • Soaking tubs and showers for hydrotherapy
  • Private fridge for your own food and beverages
  • Room darkening blinds
  • Baby bath sinks for baby's first bath
  • Variety of seating for family and friends
