Heart-Melting Photos That Show What a Water Birth Really Looks Like

There is no “proper” or “wrong” plan for giving birth. Some women opt for home births, some select hospitals, while some want a water birth. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists warns that this practice may be best for the first stage of labor because the effects of a water birth when it comes time to push and deliver have not been thoroughly studied. Despite this, some experts believe giving birth in a tub of water can lower s.tress, reduce p.ain, and prevent tearing.

Still, many moms choose this path and deliver healthy babies. Below are some of the stunning, raw photos that show what a water birth really looks like.
