What is childbirth in water?

It is said that taking this mode of delivery can shorten the delivery time and reduce the pain and trauma of puerpera (the degree of perineal tear is reduced). This can’t help but make a lot of expectant mothers yearn for it.

Amber has been pregnant for 32 weeks. She has been insisting on giving birth naturally. She pays special attention to how to relieve pain in natural labor. This is not true. Recently, she found that the hospital for her own designated obstetric examination has opened water delivery. She has heard for a long time that water delivery can greatly reduce labor pain, so amber is eager to try. However, after all, water delivery is a new mode of delivery. As a mother to be, there are still many questions in my heart. Let’s listen to how the experts answer the questions of the expectant mother.

1. Will babies choke when they are born in water?

Birth in water, as the name implies, is to produce in water. Many expectant mothers are worried: will the baby born in the water be choked? Not really.

Because of the pregnancy in October, the baby has been growing up in the mother’s womb filled with amniotic fluid. Water is his / her indispensable partner, so the baby is naturally hydrophilic. What’s more, babies born in the same water quality as amniotic fluid do not breathe immediately. When the newborn baby is carried out of the water by the midwife, skin and cold air contact, will be stimulated to produce spontaneous breathing, chest respiratory system also began to work.

Therefore, as long as the hospital operation standard, mothers do not have to worry about the baby will choke water.

2. Is it easy to be infected if it is produced in water?

Many people know that childbirth can not catch a cold, but also to prevent infection, so, is it not easy for the water childbirth to infect and catch cold?

In fact, the standard water for childbirth is specially treated, which is sterile and drinkable. The water temperature should be kept at 36-38 ℃, consistent with the human body. During the whole delivery process, you need to change the water several times to keep the water clean from the beginning to the baby’s birth. Therefore, if you choose a regular hospital for water delivery, this worry can also be said to be unnecessary.

3, water bubble is too long can be puerpera to have bad influence?

Usually take a bath too long, the skin will wrinkle, that puerpera when childbirth bubble in water for so long, can have what effect?

It turns out that the water used in water delivery is specially treated electrolyte simulated amniotic fluid, so it will not have any adverse effects on puerpera. Moreover, the water temperature has been maintained at 36-38 ℃, the temperature is very suitable, also won’t let the puerpera catch cold.

4. What situation can’t choose water delivery?

Although the water delivery will not have any adverse effects on mother and baby, it does not mean that everyone is suitable for water delivery. If it is the following three kinds of mothers to be, I suggest that it is better to choose the traditional mode of delivery, so as not to cause unnecessary harm.

1) it is found that the fetus is too large (more than 8 kg), or the fetal position is not correct, twins or multiple births are not suitable for water delivery.

2) maternal age is too old or too young is not suitable. The best age of women who give birth in water is 20-30 years old. They are too young, lack of psychological preparation, too old, and increase the risk of childbirth.

3) pregnant women with diseases, abortion history, or premature delivery are not suitable for water delivery.
