Women sink into a tub full of warm water, and everything changes. It’s MAGIC. Automatically, the room quiets, the sounds soften and the surges that seemed so overwhelming a few minutes ago become doable.
THE BENEFITS OF A WATER BIRTH #1
Natural Pain Management
NOTHING CHANGES A BIRTH LIKE PUTTING A MOM IN A TUB.
How it works
We know the warmth helps to relax muscles and bottoms. It helps keep our perineum soft and stretchy, to minimize the risk of tears.
The pressure of the water pushes blood into your torso, and better oxygenates your baby. Our tubs are over 22 inches deep. That is a full foot deeper than many bathtubs and at least 8 inches deeper than most garden tubs! In order for water to help managing the contractions, we need the belly to be submerged. We bought our tubs special, just for you!
We have shower massages too, so if you want to have a massage on your back while you sit there, you can. There is enough room in the tub for a partner, which can give you an extra layer of support and make it a more connected, intimate experience.

“Even my skeptical husband said afterwards how much better it was than our first hospital birth.”
“I had such a wonderful experience at Embrace from prenatal care to the beautiful birth of my son to postpartum. I always felt my choices were heard and followed, and looked forward to appts which were like visiting friends! I got to have both Jessica and Corina at my birth, and even my skeptical husband said afterward how much better it was than our first hospital birth. We love you guys soo much! Also shoutout to Corina for flipping my randomly breech babe at 37 wks and saving me from a c-section, to Dalyce for watching my sassy 5 year old and Jessica for making me crack up at literally every appt.”
