Event: Water babies

Event: 12 November 2016, 11:00 - 13:30

Recommended for: People interested in water births or natural pain relief, expecting mothers, NCT members and trustees



Have you ever considered what it’d be like to have a water birth?

Water births in the UK have become increasingly popular since the 90s. The idea behind it was to make the transition from life in the uterus to the outside as smooth as possible for both the baby and the mother.

Curious? Our interactive midwifery skills session will cover the history of water birth and what water birth actually is. You will be able to see a birthing pool and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of water births.

Presented by: Karen Bartholomew, Midwife and Senior Lecturer
