Community Midwives of Kingston

Do you offer waterbirth as an option?

Yes.  The use of water in labour can be an extremely effective form of pain relief.  For women planning to labour at home or planning a homebirth, we offer the use of our labour pools.  These pools are specifically designed for labour and birth and come with a specially prepared kit.  Ask your midwife for more information.

We now offer the option of labour and birth in an inflatable birthtub, at KGH, pending availability of birthtub and rooms large enough to accomodate it.  Please speak with your midwife about this.

Lots of great information available at http://www.waterbirth.org
