Allina Health is pleased to offer water birth delivery as an option for a woman's birth experience. During a water birth, the mother gives birth in water in a special birthing tub. She may also spend part of her labor in the tub. This special tub is larger and deeper than a regular bathtub, deep enough for water to cover the mother's abdomen. Water birth deliveries occur in a caring environment and are supported by an experienced team specially trained in water births.
