Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I loved my Midwife attended home waterbirth with my son born in Jan. I have 3 Daughters all born in hospital and all with epidurals. I educated myself on what to expect, there was pain but no suffering, and between contractions it was nice to relax in the warm soothing water. If you plan to have a hospital birth make sure they allow waterbirth and find out if you need to rent a birth tub and which ones they allow. If you are at home you can use your bath but I highly recommend the AQUA DOLUA birthing tub! You can rent them online but you are getting close to  your due date so you better act fast!Hope this helps~Happy Birthing~Peace on Earth begins at Birth~

As far as I know, epidurals make your leg muscles quit working so you can't walk.  I'm not sure how you'd get into the birthing tub unable to walk...
