Catching up on One Born Every Minute

Catching up on One Born Every Minute

Ive been catching up with One Born Every Minute and just watched the episode where Myleen Klass opens the birthing pool unit at the Leeds hospital, I am lucky to live near a hospital that also has birthing pools in a midwife led unit. With Noah I really wanted to use a birthing pool, a bath was so relaxing to me and I still have one every single night with this pregnancy too; but when I started having contractions with Noah and they told me to get in the bath it felt really wrong and uncomfortable.

The midwives told me to go into hospital if I didn’t start to keep down water, because they will want to check on me and make sure I am not dehydrated.
