Water Birth explained by Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour

Dr Shivani Sachdev Gour Speaking on Water Birth:

Here’s why you should also go for a water birth like actress Shveta Salve

Experts say that there are many benefits of a water birth and more and more Indians today are opting for it
water birth delivery Actress Shveta Salve, who just announced her pregnancy on Instagram, has said that she would be going for a water birth. “I plan to deliver my baby in Goa, as my parents live there. Maharashtrians follow a tradition — the first child is born in the maternal grandmother’s house. I will opt for a water birth. Goa has many home birth centres, so it will be apt,” she said in an interview last week.

“Water Birthing is an alternative birthing method where the mother delivers inside a pool of heated water. Water labour meanwhile is a method in which she labours in water but delivers outside,” says Dr Shelly Singh, MD (Senior consultant Obstetrics  and Gynaecology) Primus Super-Speciality Hospital in Chanakyapuri, Delhi. The basic theory is that the baby spends nine months in the amniotic fluid and in this method it is a similar water-based environment that is gentler and less stressful for the baby, she adds. Dr Shelly lists the steps of a water birth:
  • The mother enters water once she is in active labour.
  • She is constantly monitored using water proof dopplers and monitors by obstetricians or doulas (trained birth professionals) who give her constant medical, emotional and physical support.
  • Once the baby is delivered in water, he/ she is immediately raised out of water before he/ she takes his/ her first breath.
  • The baby doesn’t drown, therefore, water births are safe for the baby too.
